Just two points on 1-of-3 shooting in the 2nd half for Bobby Portis. Only 8 for the game. He’s only been held under 10 twice this season.
Michael Qualls is dunking like the rim owes him money.
Hampton like !! 😳😳 http://t.co/IAH6EvxWEc
Harvard had made 7 of 9 shots leading up to Chambers’ 4-point play but the Crimson missed their final three attempts of the game (all 3s).
UNC escapes, 67-65. Crushing loss for Harvard, which had plenty of chances at the end and just couldn’t convert.
Siyani Chambers’ 4-point play gives Harvard a 65-63 lead over North Carolina with 1:15 to play. Wow.
If Cinncinatti pulls this off tho...... !!!
UNC clinging to a 60-57 lead @ the under-4:00 time out. Harvard will shoot two free throws after the break. Lead hasn’t been at 1 since 8-7.
North Carolina lead is back up to five after a pair of free throws. 60-55 with 5:00 to go.
Could we have another upset on our hands? Harvard has trailed the whole game — by as much as 16 — but is within 3 of UNC with 5:26 to go.
WIN AND ADVANCE AZ! I'm trying to tell y'all
Taurean Prince, Royce O’Neale and Kenny Chery were about as speechless and terse as you’d be if you lost a game like Baylor just did.
Gotta love March!!
How everyone feels about their bracket right now 😑😑 http://t.co/D11DONvVH2
And coach Ron Hunter — torn Achilles, scooter and all — celebrating the win with Georgia State fans: http://t.co/N3MCfkyIr3
And here’s R.J. Hunter, the most popular man at Georgia State right now: http://t.co/25sTle4H8M
This is how it feels to win an NCAA tournament game you had no business winning: http://t.co/iMJr2MQfLG
Oh wow. RJ Hunter, who was basically invisible for the first 35 min of the game, hit a 3 from Atlanta to give GSU 57-56 lead with 2.8 left.
Isaiah Dennis splits a pair of free throws to cut the Baylor lead to 56-54. Bears on line with 14.1 to go.
That T.J. Shipes free throw wasn’t even close for Georgia State. Blew the 1-and-1. Baylor still up 56-53 with the ball and 30.3 to go.
Another Hunter steal and layup cuts it to 56-53. Baylor calls time out with 1:07 left. Bears have completely folded under GSU pressure.
Seven straight points for R.J. Hunter and Georgia State is within five at 56-51 with 1:28 left. Perhaps I sharpie’d too soon?
Just one field goal in the last nine minutes for GSU, which only has 2:54 to overcome a 12-point deficit against Baylor. Sharpie.
Georgia State hasn’t scored a point in 4:04 and hasn’t made a field goal in 5:33. Bad time for a drought like that.
A 7-0 Baylor run gives Bears a 49-42 lead with 7:45 to go and forces a GSU time out. Panthers are very close to letting this one slip away.
Baylor is killing themselves with turnovers. Bears have 15 for the game and 8 already in second half. Just 5 for Georgia State.
R.J. Hunter (19.8 ppg) has just 4 points on 1-of-7 shooting so far, but Panthers trail just 42-41, 11:51 to go. This is getting interesting.
Baylor has turned the ball over four times in the last 2:20 and Georgia State has used a 6-0 run to take a 41-40 lead with 13:10 to play.
Both teams shooting the ball well in the first half: Baylor 54.2%, Georgia State 55%.
Taurean Prince hit a 3 at the buzzer to give Baylor a 33-30 lead over Ga. St. going into the half. Prince has 10 points to lead all scorers.
After missing 7 of their first 10 shots against Baylor, Georgia State has made 9 of 12 since the 12:41 mark. 26-26.
And we’re off here in Jacksonville: http://t.co/z3DYdUz0Ax
Georgia State coach Ron Hunter just came out to a nice ovation from the fans: http://t.co/zbWyi7vzmA
Ryan Harrow (hamstring) isn’t warming up for Georgia State. Seems he’ll be watching this one from the bench.
Sitting right in front of the Georgia State section here in Jacksonville. Their fans are nothing if not rowdy. Ga. St.-Baylor tips in 30.

Anyway, I’ll stop there for now with the 1985 Villanova championship team stories, but I can’t promise I won’t pick it up later.
Multiple guys got choked up talking to me about Nevin, even 30 yr after his death from ALS. Jake was as much a part of Nova's run as anyone.
Jake Nevin was a great aspect of the Nova run that I wish I could've gotten into more. He was at the school from 1929 until his death in ’85
Rob Wilson, then a student manager at Villanova and now the Heat’s PR man, described Rollie’s Nets decision thusly: http://t.co/re75pQHntl
Another thing people forget is that Rollie Massimino almost left Villanova a couple months after the 1985 championship to coach the NJ Nets.
And just in case anyone wanted to be able to put faces to names in the oral history, here’s the team photo from 1985: http://t.co/XIGOJlWlMa
I loved this shot, too, from the celebration/parade after Nova returned to Philly. Check out the people in the trees: http://t.co/RxEsUI9cWQ
This was the whole crew of guys from the 1985 Nova team at the 30th anniversary celebration in November. Amazing: http://t.co/AboE1Tb4fa
Dawson was also the one member of the ’85 Nova team that didn’t make it to Philly for the 30th anny. when Nova hosted Northwood in November.
After winning the title as a freshman at Nova, Dawson transferred to Evansville during his sophomore year and grew apart from the team.
My lone regret is that I wasn’t able to talk to Veltra Dawson for the story. He's the one guy I never got & it wasn’t due to lack of effort.
Every year, a group of guys from the ’85 team travels to West Palm to see Massimino. This year, they watched the Super Bowl together.
... I mentioned Mark Plansky, and without missing a beat, Massimino, at 80, says, ‘Oh, you know it’s Plansky’s birthday tomorrow, right?'
When I first stepped into Coach Massimino’s office at Northwood for our interview, he asked me who I had talked to for the story already...
I’ve been around a plenty of coaches at several different levels and I’ve never seen one with the connection Massimino had with the 85 team.
Massimino’s “this is a 40-year commitment, not a 4-year commitment” pitch came up with several of the guys, but you could tell it wasn’t BS.
For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. Ephesians 5:30
It's possible the Magic will be shorthanded against the Mavs tonight. THarris sprained an ankle & DDedmon rolled an ankle last night.
Beauty in the struggle.
Dewayne Dedmon rolled his left ankle on Corey Brewer's score with 7:56 left. Dedmon remained in the game, but the ankle is bothering him.
Harris missed five games earlier this season because of a sprained left ankle. It's unclear if he injured the ankle in the same place.
Tobias Harris has a sprained left ankle and will not return to the game.
