Arkansas escapes Wofford 56-53. Wofford had two decent looks at 3 on its last possession. Three tough games today for big favorites, though.
You can see why they call it March Madness.
Obviously still a long way to go, and I wouldn’t bet on Portis having less than 10 when it’s done, but Wofford's done a nice job on SEC POY.
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.
