Quardell Young hit a layup with 0.9 seconds to go to lift UW-Whitewater to the 2014 NCAA Division III men's basketball national championship, defeating Williams 75-73. After Michael Mayer tipped in a rebound to give Williams a 73-72 lead with four seconds left, UW-Whitewater inbounded the ball to Young about 25 feet from the baseline, and Young slithered three quarters court for a driving layup that went in with 0.9 seconds left to give UW-W the NCAA Division III basketball championship in Salem, Va. Young added a free throw for the final, 75-73.
