Every so often, the gambling gods give bettors a layup and Duke being just a 3 point first half favorite was one of those lay ups.

Hield is best shooter since Steph Curry

 

With our back court, I'd love the bulls to draft him.

According to @numberfire Northern Iowa had a 99.99% chance of winning the game up 12 points with 44 seconds to go. Total meltdown and they lose in double OT

It was pretty bad, but it was an 3-11 matchup.

Don't see how that matters. A high school team wouldn't blow a 12 point lead in 30 seconds against the Warriors.

If UNI and A&M were in opposite positions, it would absolutely be the worst choke job in sports. It's definitely top five.

 

And the Warriors would destroy a high school team down 12 with 30 seconds left.

Yeah, seeding doesn't matter in that situation. Biggest tourney choke I've ever seen.

For me, it's tied with the Weber time out. The seed matters a lot, as UNI was severely overachieving the entire game.

 

As far as non-NCAA, the Spurs choke in 2013, the Bruins in 2013, the Red Wings in 2013 are all in the discussion. The Spurs one in particular.

None of those even compare to blowing an 11 point lead in 70 seconds.

What? Those "chokes" happen every year in the NHL, they don't even register in the same stratosphere. And if you are going that rout, the 2013 Maple Leafs were a way bigger choke job than either of those teams.

ICYMI, Texas A&M's rally from 12 down w/less than 1:00 to play is the largest last-minute deficit overcome to win in college hoops history.

Old record was set in February 2005. UNLV was down 11 to San Diego St. with 59 seconds left. Also won in OT.

 

Biggest comeback in college hoops history! That's a lot of basketball games.

Yeah, I don't ever recall seeing anything like it looking at pro, college, or high school basketball in the thousands of games I have seen over the years.

Northern Iowa deserved to lose based on the turnovers and inability to get the ball in, but holy crap did the refs help A&M. They got destroyed on double teams with no calls and then the and-1 was a phantom call with no contact.

"They left with under a minute to go," Gilder told reporters. "They were walking to their car, and somebody said Admon hit the layup to tie it. So they watched the double overtime in the car on the way back to Dallas. They said sorry they weren't there to see that, and they loved me no matter what."

Hield is one of the best pure shooters/scorers in quite awhile.

 

He tends to turn the ball over more than he should, he's not especially explosive driving to the basket (effective is the best word) and sometimes plays pedestrian defense, but what a college player.

 

OU got in a cold streak there in the 2nd half of the Big 12 where they weren't hitting their outside shots as consistently as defense were keying in on Hield, but they've seemingly gotten all their lost momentum back. Christian James is starting to make more of an impact now as well.

 

 

For what it's worth, it's also nice to see something different from the ACC "love fest" going on.
