Stephen F. Austin needed a big time play.

The Lumberjacks got it.

Desmond Haymon made a four-point play with 3.6 seconds left in regulation to tie the game and send it into overtime.

SFA went on to beat Virginia Commonwealth, 77-to-75.

It is the first win ever for the 'Jacks in the NCAA Tournament.

Stephen F. Austin led by six at the half.

The Lumberjacks led by ten early in the second half.

But Virginia Commonwealth started to pressure SFA.

The VCU Rams went on a 20-to-3 run to take the lead.

That set up SFA's incredible comeback.

It was a wild second half of this NCAA Tournament game in San Diego.

The heart-attack Lumberjacks win their 29th straight game.

Stephen F. Austin was down by 10 with 3:30 left in regulation.

But the 'Jacks will be back for another game Sunday.
