NCAAB has flown under the radar this season — if you we’re being politically correct around here…
There haven’t been many nationally-televised, primetime marquee games that have everyone running to the water cooler at work to talk about as soon as they get in — until last night when #1 Kansas hosted #2 Oklahoma in what will go down as one of the best regular season college basketball games ever, seeing the home team prevail 109-106 in triple over time.
It didn’t finish without a little controversy though, as Kansas’ Mason III appeared to be illegally defending Oklahoma’s star Buddy Hield out of bounds, consequently denying Buddy and the Sooners a chance to inbown the ball in without turning it over.
Ain't he out of bounds??? No space huh… Nobody can get a pass like that off. Where is the ref? pic.twitter.com/133d3PzsSp— Baron Davis (@BaronDavis) January 5, 2016
Speaking of Buddy Hield, we may have found the locked in #2 draft pick behind Ben Simmons in this year’s NBA draft. This kid BALLED THE HELL OUT, dropping 46 points — all of which were earned.
Only one team can draft Ben Simmons, but, you’re foolish if you think the Lakers/Sixers/T Wolves/bottom-feeders of the NBA weren’t watching this last night with thoughts of #YieldForHield running through their minds.
Anyways, after the instant classic game was over: it was cool to see Kansas fans not only show some awesome sportsmanship, but, acknowledge the greatness they had just witnessed by an unfathomably-talented player — giving him a standing ovation as he finished his SportsCenter interview with ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt and walked off the court.
Don’t feel bad for Buddy that his team lost despite his amazing performance, this man just made himself MILLIONS of dollars last night in NBA money — I don’t think he’ll be shedding tears any time soon.
