Charlotte-Richmond Ending Includes 11 Free Throws, 3 Technicals [VIDEO]

The final 4.7 seconds of the Charlotte-Richmond game on Thursday night was as wild as it gets.  You have to see this ending to believe it.

The beginning of the Atlantic 10 tournament at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn had an absolutely wild finish.  The Richmond Spiders had a three-point lead over the Charlotte 49ers in the final seconds.  With 4.7 seconds remaining, Richmond fouled Charlotte guard Pierria Henry to avoid a potential game-tying 3-pointer.

Henry made the front end of a one-and-one.  As Henry made the first free throw, Richmond’s Derrick Williams shoved Charlotte’s Willie Clayton to the floor.  Because this foul occurred in a dead ball situation, it resulted in an automatic technical foul.  Pierria Henry hit the back end of the one-and-one along with both technical foul shots to give Charlotte a one-point lead.

Richmond then fouled Charlotte to preserve time and extend the game while trailing by one point.  The officials inexplicably called a three-shot foul on Richmond as Pierria Henry (there’s that man again) heaved the ball at the basket near half court.  Richmond head coach Chris Mooney went off on the officials for the brutal call and got hit with two technical fouls.

Charlotte tacked on four more free throws and ended up winning the game 68-63. Henry ended up making eight of the 11 free throws he took in the final 4.7 seconds.  Unbelievable.  104.5 The Team, ESPN Radio will have Championship Week coverage this Saturday.  Coverage of the ACC tournament at 4pm ET will follow our coverage of the Yankees-Phillies spring training game beginning at 1:05pm.
