Georgia Tech and Arkansas provided us with one of the weirdest finishes of the college basketball season to date.
The Yellow Jackets forced overtime with a run in the second half, outscoring the Razorbacks 9-2 in the final five minutes. In overtime, the scoring stopped.
For four minutes and 45 seconds.
That’s how long it took to break the deadlock, when James Banks hit a runner to give Georgia Tech their first lead since the first half.
Then this happened:
Nothing screams college basketball like a game-winning, 35-foot step-bank three getting banked in to let a team win by outscoring someone 3-2 in overtime.
I love this sport so much.
