On Saturday, in an incredible come-from-behind upset, the Barton Bulldogs won the Division II men's basketball championship.

Barton College defeated the previously unbeaten Winona State to win the championship 77-75.

In the last 39 seconds of the game, point guard Anthony Atkinson scored all of the Barton Bulldogs' final 10 points. His winning shot came at the buzzer.

Ron Lievense is the basketball coach at Barton College in Wilson, N.C., a school of about 1,100 students. He talks with Melissa Block about the win.
