UCLA Hall of Famer Tyus Edney is playing some (not all) games with the Los Angeles Lightning of the International Basketball League. He played this past weekend and once again won a game by going coast-to-coast in the waning seconds.
According to L.A. Daily News writer Tom Hoffarth, "With the score tied and 6.4 seconds left in Sunday night's International Basketball League game in Santa Barbara, the former UCLA star drove the length-of-the-court and hit a 5-foot floater to lift the Los Angeles Lightning to a dramatic 119-117 win over the Oregon Waves.
"With time running out, you have to get it down there," said Edney, who's famously known for a similar coast-to-coast drive and layup that lifted UCLA over Missouri 75-74 in the second round of the 1995 NCAA Tournament. The Bruins went on to win their 11th title.
"It was a little floater," Edney said. "I had to put it up high to get it over the big man. This is a good win. They came to play today."
Edney is back living in Southern California after ending his international playing career and attended last Tuesday's Pauley Pavilion groundbreaking celebration.
