Villanova's getting pretty good at this court storming thing. - USA TODAY Sports
A big Saturday of action in the country's greatest conference, but first, we have a GIF, courtesy of CBS Sports' Eye On College Basketball...
Yeah, so it's not from a Big East game. I don't care, Ole Mss guard Marshall Henderson is trolling Auburn fans HARDCORE after hitting two free throws with seven seconds left to give the #23 ranked Rebels a win in Auburn's gym. It's like watching Buzz Williams dance on WVU's logo, except completely and unapologetically on purpose.
To the Big East games!
Villanova 75, #3/4 Syracuse 71 - Ryan Arcidiacono hit a three pointer with three seconds left to force overtime and James Bell scored eight of the Wildcats' 14 points in OT to give the crowd at the Wells Fargo Center their second chance to storm the court this week. I wasn't really in favor of Nova's court storming against Louisville, but when you storm for #5, you best be running out there when your team beats #3. VU Hoops has more for you.
Georgetown 53, #5/5 Louisville 51 - Total points scored in the last 3:35 of this one: TWO. One free throw from Chane Behanan and one free throw from Otto Porter. That's bananas. But that's okay, because this game was 24 seconds longer than your standard issue college basketball game. The game winner came on a CRAZY put back by former Marquette commit Aaron Bowen, which you can see here at the 2:12 mark. Casual Hoya gets excited here, while Card Chronicle tries to figure out what's happened since UL was ranked #1 in the country.
#24/23 Notre Dame 73, South Florida 65 - The Bulls had a seven point halftime lead, but Notre Dame went on a 20-3 run to take the lead at 48-40 with 13 to play. Tom Knight had 17 points. His previous career high? Nine, against Sacred Heart in December of 2011. Go figure. Voodoo Five plays a familiar refrain.
Pittsburgh 93, DePaul 55 - DePaul gonna DePaul, and by that, I mean they LED in this game 10-9 with 14:24 left in the first half. A 23-5 run by Pitt over the next 5+ minutes turned that around pretty quickly, though. Every Panther that played scored at least seven points, with the exception of James Robinson, who had just a lone free throw. Anyone else fascinated by the fact that DePaul had 15 guys see action in this game? I mean, that means that there's at least two dudes willing to walk on to this team. Cardiac Hill has more.
