The ending to regulation in Thursday’s matchup between No. 8 seed Cincinnati and No. 9 seed Purdue was the epitome of March Madness.

Cincinnati’s Troy Caupain had the ball with just under 10 seconds left in the game, and came up with a bit of magic.

Caupain drove the lane and, just tenths of a second before the final buzzer sounded, laid the ball up on the basket. For what seemed like ages the basketball clung to the back of the rim before falling and sending the game to overtime.

In OT, Cincinnati went on to win 66-65.

There are still games to be played, but this play might just be Thursday’s "The One." It definitely has a spot reserved in "One Shining Moment."
