There isn't much a coach can do when left with just three players, but Avery Johnson's three remaining players continued to compete. The Minnesota Golden Gophers got an 89-84 win over an Alabama Crimson Tide team that finished the contest with three players.
"That was probably one of the most freakish things I've ever been a part of in college basketball", Minnesota's Jordan Murphy, who finished with 19 points and 14 boards, said afterwards.
BYU basketball coach Dave Rose clearly isn't thrilled about his team's next game. "For 27 minutes we were a really, really good team". "BYU always travels, so we know they'll have our back", Worthington said. "There was no quit in our team". A few seconds later, Mason was tossed after he kept talking and picked up another technical foul. "And then obviously, insanity ensued". All of the players who stepped onto the court were ejected, leaving Alabama with five players. And if you turn him more than four or five times, that's a good possession.
"By rule, whenever a potential situation occurs on the court, no player may leave the bench area". The apex of the commotion came watching the Gophers decide on the fly whether to shoot or hold the ball and who should or shouldn't be doing those things as they clung to a lead everyone was fairly sure would hold. Based on the views that were given us it showed all of their players on the bench, came off the bench onto the court.
"I think it's fair to say we may never see that again in the history of college basketball", one of the commentators said. Two minutes of game time later, Ingram fouled out, leaving Alabama with four players. From then on the Golden Gophers steadied to secure the victory. Alabama had a chance to cut the deficit to one - or tie - after Sexton grabbed a rebound of a miss by Coffey, but he missed a mid-range right side jumper.
Sexton and his two remaining teammates, Galin Smith and Riley Norris, fought back valiantly to make this a truly incredible game. He hoisted hard shots, searched for the basket and brought the game within just three points with 1:39 left. "Not a very good explanation from the promoter, but we are stuck". "There was no surrender in our team". They exchanged words with 14:06 left in the second half and the Gophers leading by 13 in a game that had grown physical but had not yet boiled over.
The Terps got to work early, sprinting to a 24-point lead in the first 8:36.
At No. 11 Miami 86, North Florida 65: Bruce Brown and Anthony Lawrence scored 14 points each. The 6-foot-5 Alabama native is averaging 15.8 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. His dunk with 7 minutes 4 seconds to play capped the surge and gave the Hurricanes a 26-9 lead.
JT Escobar scored 16 points for the Ospreys (1-7).
