There’s been a lot of talk this year about former Kentucky Wildcats hitting game-winning buzzer beaters in the NBA.

Former Wildcat Ramon Harris of Anchorage has been doing that in the NBA D-League since 2014.

The 6-foot-7 sharpshooter hit the second game-winning buzzer beater of the season with the Grand Rapids Drive and the fourth of his pro career.

His latest last-second game winner beat his former team in a 99-97 victory over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

With the score tied and 1 second left on the clock, Grand Rapids attempted an alley-oop off an inbounds play but the pass bounced off the rim and caromed right to Harris, who quickly threw up a shot that kissed off glass for an improbable game-winner.

His first three buzzer beaters were more conventional.

His first one came in December 2014 when he received a pass off a dribble-drive assist and swished his wide-open look from the right side to supply Fort Wayne with a 124-121 win over the Iowa Energy.

The second one came in March 2016 when he drilled a catch-and-shoot 3-pointer as time expired to deliver Iowa a 108-105 victory over Fort Wayne.

His third buzzer beater came in December 2016 when he took a midcourt inbounds pass and knocked down a 25-footer with a hand in his face to provide Grand Rapids with a 103-102 win over the Oklahoma City Blue.

Harris, of West High fame, won a D-League championship in 2014 and he leads all Alaska with 1,645 career points.
