Stephen F. Austin gets first ever March Madness win in OT

Published Add your comment

In another March Madness game that lived up to the tournaments name, Stephen F. Austin came back from being down by double figures to beat Virginia Commonwealth.

This should have been a game that the number 12 team didn't have a chance in. Number 5 VCU had the game to lose and in the second half were up 45-56.

But SFA, who now extend themselves to a 29 game winning streak hit back and made the magic of this tournament more magical.

In the last three seconds of the game with VCU happily up 63-67, SFA's Desmond Haymon made a great corner three pointer but also took a completely avoidable foul from JeQuan Lewis giving SFA a free throw to level the game and take it in to OT after another free throw.

This is the second big shock of the day after Mercer took out Duke earlier and SFA will now have to face Tulsa or UCLA in the newt round.
