Nneka Ogwumike’s Finals-Winning Buzzer Beater Lands In AP’s 2016 Top 10

It’s right where it should belong.

Olympic glory. Kris Jenkins’ NCAA championship-clinching shot. LeBron’s block. And Nneka’s put-back.

The Associated Press placed the epic conclusion to October’s WNBA Finals in that elite company when it ranked the Top 10 Plays of 2016.

The AP’s description of the No. 10 play:

The scene: No time-outs left, a big late lead having turned into a one-point deficit, and an entire arena in Minnesota screaming for you to fail. Somehow that brought out the best in Nneka Ogwumike of the Los Angeles Sparks. Her basket with 3.1 seconds left in a thrilling Game 5 of the WNBA Finals gave the Sparks a 77-76 victory over the then-reigning-champion Lynx.
