March January Madness officially is here.
The NCAA Tournament still is over two months away, but college basketball’s regular season is providing plenty of entertainment. Case in point: Sunday night’s matchup between Stanford and USC, which saw five points scored in the final three seconds in a wild ending.
Here’s how it went down: With eight seconds remaining, USC’s Jordan McLaughlin drove the length of the court to hit a contested layup that put the Trojans up by two points with just 1.7 seconds on the clock.
Ballgame, right? Daejon Davis had other plans, as the Cardinal’s freshman guard launched a desperation heave from beyond half court — and drilled it for the game-winner.
Davis’ miracle shot gave Stanford a 77-76 win over its Pac-12 rival and sent the Cardinal’s Maple Pavilion into a frenzy.
Here’s an up-close look at the mayhem:
Neither team is ranked, and Stanford improved to just 8-8 with the win. But Sunday’s thriller was a friendly reminder that the drama is starting to build in college basketball — and things only will get crazier from here.
