Xavier Simpson Game Winning Shot To Win Lima Cup

Submitted by goblue224 on January 27th, 2016 at 6:59 AM

Simpson sank a 12-foot, step-back jumper with one second left to give Lima Senior a heart-stopping 54-52 boys basketball victory over Lima Central Catholic before a sold-out, packed house Tuesday at Herr Gymnasium.

“I had a pretty good idea how much (time) was left because I started walking him down with five, six seconds left and tried to get a reaction and hopefully, I could make a move and react in the opposite direction,” Simpson said. “I was just happy I made the shot and happy we got the victory.”

Well, I'm shocked. Shaquille O'Neal said today that he was "paid very well" while at LSU. I'm not sure if they have any banners from that era, but they're going to have to take them down.

Episode covered the victories against both Nebraska and Minnesota with some pretty cool lockeroom speeches by John Beilein. On the womens side it covered their win against PSU and the home loss to OSU. Also included a cool interview with DJ Wilson and some information on the origins of his name DJ. Enjoy

OT: Crazy ending to EMU / Ball St basketball game

OT: Crazy ending to EMU / Ball St basketball game

Unless you were one of the dozens people at the EMU v Ball State basketball game in Ypsilanti last weekend, you probably missed the crazy finish. At the end of the second overtime, EMU got a rebound with just under 17 seconds left and a two point lead. Two BSU defenders foul the rebounder repeatedly to put EMU at the line, but the refs completely swallow their whistles until a BSU player finally rips the ball away. The BSU player then takes about five steps without dribbling, and passes to a teammate, who hits a 3 to win the game.

Both refs have been suspended by the MAC for the multple/egregious no-calls. Linky:

On an extremely tangentially related note, does anyone else have the slightest doubt that the NCAA crackdown on fouling will completely disappear during late season conference tourneys and/or the NCAA tourney? Can you imagine any ref in their right mind calling, say, Denzel Valentine for two hand-check or clutch-n-grab fouls in the first three minutes of an NCAA tourney game? I think that crackdown is an advantage for Michigan since it frees up offensive movement, but I doubt it's enforced when it matters.
