With just one ranked team playing, Sunday’s schedule paled in comparison to what we were treated to Saturday. However, Loyola (MD) and Colgate combined to put forth one of the more thrilling finishes in college basketball this season.

Needing an extra five minutes to determine a winner, Colgate guard Austin Tillotson capped his “Senior Day” with a half-court shot as time expired to give the Raiders a 93-90 overtime win. Tillotson’s shot came just 2.9 seconds after Loyola’s Andre Walker tied the game at 90 with a three-pointer of his own.

Walker initially dribbled past the three-point line before circling back to release the shot that could have forced a second overtime. Tillotson had other ideas however, and his shot keeps Colgate (9-7 Patriot League; tied for 4th) in the running to host a game in next month’s Patriot League tournament.
