Northeastern Misses Wide-Open Player With NCAA Tournament Game On Line


Mar 19, 2015

No. 14 Northeastern had a wide-open shot at upsetting third-seeded Notre Dame, but the Huskies simply didn’t see it.

Northeastern was trailing the Fighting Irish 67-65 in the final seconds of their NCAA Tournament Midwest region matchup, but Notre Dame’s defense got the best of the Huskies. Northeastern guard David Walker had the ball, but he didn’t have the shot or a timeout, so he passed it to junior Quincy Ford.

Unfortunately for the Huskies, junior guard Zach Stahl was open the whole time.

“That last play is dreading me now,” Ford told the Boston Herald after the game Thursday.

“I would have passed it back to Zach,” Ford added. “They said he was screaming. I did not see him. The hedge was so good I was trying to get around that first and then see. I was barraged by defenders, and I just lost it.”

But for what it’s worth, Northeastern head coach Bill Coen simply is happy that his team made it as far as it did in a tough situation.

“We had an opportunity to tie the game up or grab the lead in the last possession,” Coen told the Herald. “I think in the NCAA Tournament, that’s about all you can ask for.”
