WATCH: You make the call on if Iowa’s win at the buzzer should’ve counted

NEW YORK — A buzzer-beater in Brooklyn.

And what a Friday this has become for the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

Seventh-ranked Iowa beat No. 10 Temple in overtime after Mike Gesell’s shot was long, but Adam Woodbury was there for the catch.

Iowa wins 72-70 and moves on to play Villanova in Sunday’s second round.

But did he push off? You can make that case that yes, he indeed did. Watch it again. Woodbury is well-positioned but he gives a nudge to Temple’s Obi Enechionyia.

Temple fans can’t be happy. Our Wally Szczerbiak sums it up with this tweet:

Temple coach Fran Dunphy, meanwhile, didn’t bite when asked about the push-off.

For an Iowa team that advances, it’s a rejuvenating win for a team that ended the season on a horrid slump.

It was electric here at Barclays Center. A terrific fan turnout. Woodbury finished with 10 points, while Iowa was led by Jarrod Uthoff’s 23. Temple pushed (no pun intended) the game to OT in crazy fashion after Iowa fouled Quenton DeCosey with 2.1 seconds to go. He cashed all three.

Iowa wins at the buzzer on this controversial play. Iowa wins at the buzzer on this controversial play. (TBS)
