Yes, you had Tyus Edney’s coast to coast sprint to the basket to save UCLA’s legacy, Bryce Drew sending Valpo into the stratosphere against Ole Miss, and of course who could forget Christian Laettner’s transcendent triple to stun Kentucky.

But what the Stephen F Austin lumberjacks did to get their second round game to OT, then win it, was simply magical.

First off try to name me 3 four-point plays that mattered in a late game situation to begin with, then think of the fact that the Lumberjacks were on a 28-game winning streak coming in and went up against a VCU team that has been to a Final Four recently and are coached by one of the best in the biz in Shaka Smart.

Add that all together and the fact the S.F Austin was able to get this done, and in the fifth OT game in  the opening weekend of the tourney, just makes it that much more special.

Where does this game and finish rank in NCAA tourney lore for you?

Oh BTW the #DTMPREDICTIONMACHINE tried to help you with this correct pick in the first place [SEE HERE!]
