NCAA: Take It Up A Notch

It’s one and done. We have heard it all before. If you lose, you go home. There is so much pressure and so much emotion on the floor during the NCAA tournament that it brings basketball to a whole new level. UConn won ultimately last night but played badly for most of the game. My highlight reel is this moment when 7′ Amida Brimah snagged a hard-fought rebound and converted it into a 3-point play, tying the game at 70 with 39 seconds left in regulation. A heart stopping moment. This was just after Coach Kevin Ollie screamed at him, inches from his face, “Get EVERY damn rebound!”

 With seconds left, this rebound, shot and foul by Amida Brimah tied the game in regulation. At right is St. Joe's Halil Kanacevic.
