5 memorable college hoops tourney buzzer beaters

It's March, which means the NCAA Tournament is just around the corner. But before March Madness takes hold, the conference tournaments, which get under way this week, often provide their own share of exciting finishes. Here are five memorable buzzer beaters from conference tournament play.

Ohio State vs. Michigan (2010 Big Ten quarterfinal)

The Wolverines were two seconds away from upsetting OSU in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament in 2010. But then the Buckeyes got the ball into the hands of Evan Turner.

UConn vs. Pitt (2011 Big East quarterfinal)

Guard Kemba Walker's step-back jumper at the buzzer lifted the Huskies to an upset of Pitt in the Big East tournament and sparked a postseason run that ended with coach Jim Calhoun's third national championship.

Stetson vs. Belmont (2011 Atlantic Sun women's semifinal)

The women have provided their share of buzzer beating excitement in conference tournaments over the years, as in the 2011 Atlantic Sun Conference semifinal, when Stetson guard Victoria McGowan threw in a 55-footer to beat Belmont.

BYU vs. UTEP (1992 WAC championship)

The Cougars were on the verge of seeing their hopes for an NCAA Tournament bid dashed until forward Kevin Nixon made a shot that BYU fans still talk about more than 20 years later.

Washington vs. Arizona (2011 Pac 10 championship)

A back-and-forth championship game in 2011 between the Huskies and the Wildcats came down to Washington's final possession in overtime.
