1. ST. BONAVENTURE AND DAVIDSON PLAYED A THREE-OT THRILLER

This game was insane.

The final score was 117-113. It went into three overtimes. Jaylen Adams and Peyton Aldridge, the two stars, both went crazy — Adams finished with 34 points and Aldridge had 43 points — before they fouled out. Five players went for at least 30 points. No one led by more than four points from the 19 minute mark of the second half until there was less than a minute left in OT.

In the end, it was Matt Mobley making plays at the end of the third OT to spark a comeback and help the Bonnies pull away.

This was a massive, massive win for St. Bonaventure, who is currently in a fight to actually get into the NCAA tournament.

2. THAT UNC-MIAMI ENDING, THO

No. 9 North Carolina trailed by as many as 16 points in the second half of Joel Berry II’s senior night before he turned in a vintage Joel Berry and carried the team all the way back.

Berry finished with 31 points, including a three with 4.1 seconds left to tie the game.

That’s when JaQuan Newton did this:

3. ARE THE TWO BEST POINT GUARD PROSPECTS IN THE COUNTRY GOING TO MISS THE NCAA TOURNAMENT?

Oklahoma went on the road and lost by 23 points to Baylor on Tuesday night, meaning that Trae Young’s team has now lost seven of their last eight and 10 of their last 13 games.

They’re 17-12 on the season.

Alabama?

They lost their fourth straight game. At home. By 21 points. Collin Sexton and the Crimson Tide have now lost four straight.

They’re now 17-13.
