There’s been no shortage of Indiana reaction since its upset of then-No. 1 Kentucky at the last second Saturday at Assembly Hall, and for good reason. It was an unreal game between two of the nation’s most prestigious programs, and it came down to a buzzer-beating 3-pointer that resulted in a crazy scene in Bloomington, Ind. Now, there’s a video that matches the memorable final 5.6 seconds and ensuing madness to the soundtrack of “Hoosiers.” Watch the video in this post.
Earlier this season, Michigan wore special uniforms against Notre Dame for the first night game at Michigan Stadium (see the uniform!) and did so again when it played at rival Michigan State (see the uniform!), so it should come as no surprise it will unveil another alternate jersey for the Sugar Bowl. Adidas recently designed several new “Legacy”-type Michigan duds and the Wolverine seniors selected their favorite style (see AnnArbor.com’s story & detailed portrait!), which they will wear next month against Virginia Tech, the school confirmed Tuesday.
(AP) Tayler Hill had 21 points, four assists and five steals in 29 minutes to lead No. 12 Ohio State to an 83-49 victory over Southern University on Tuesday night. Hill, who is 11th nationally in scoring at 21.3 points per game, had five steals in the first 15 minutes and converted all of them into layups to help the Buckeyes (9-0) to a 44-24 halftime lead. Ohio State can match the 2000-01 team for the program’s best start in the NCAA era since (1982-83) with a win Saturday at California.
Here’s a great play for you. At first glance, you might say, “That’s a pretty nice buzzer-beater.” Then, if you watch the play again, you can’t help but miss the powerful – and, let it be known, legal – pick set by Blake McLimans to make the terrific last-second shot possible. Watch McLimans’ leveling pick and freshman Trey Burke’s buzzer-beater to end the first half against Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Tuesday night at Crisler Arena now.
