Foul up three in the final seconds of a college basketball game, right? That's been an ongoing topic of conversation among college basketball minds.

The situation presented itself again on Thursday night, as Michigan State held onto a 78-75 lead in the final seconds of regulation against Minnesota. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo made the decision not to foul, and in return, Minnesota's Carlos Morris rose up, drilled a game-tying 3-pointer with 2.2 seconds remaining in the game, and was fouled on the play. Morris missed the free throw, sending the game into overtime.

Check out the wild sequence in the video above.

Michigan State had a chance to make up for it in overtime, but Minnesota started OT on a 9-2 run and went on to defeat the Spartans, 96-90, marking the Gophers' first win in East Lansing since 1997.

Here's what Izzo had to say about his choice not to intentionally foul in the final seconds of the game.
