UConn's Shabazz Napier hit a buzzer-beater on Monday, and he celebrated by running straight to the tunnel and out of the gym.

The fact that he was able to sink the game-winner is impressive. No. 12 UConn trailed No. 15 Florida 64-63 with 17.7 seconds left. Napier had to dribble out of trouble and then missed a shot with about three seconds remaining. Luckily, the ball bounced right back out to him, and he sank the follow-up shot as time expired.

Once the players calmed down, they came back out to the court to make sure the shot counted. 

The Huskies escaped with a 65-64 victory, thanks to Napier's 26 points, to move to 8-0.

Hat tip to The Big Lead for the find.
