69-68 UConn; :5.0 in OT

  • San Diego takes a timeout to talk things over. Given Thabeet's presence in the middle, a look in the paint and/or an offensive board are unlikely. I'd think this is going to be a pick-and-pop, but what do I know?
  • San Diego breaks huddle and will inbound at half court with :38 to play.
  • Here we go: WOW! Rob Jones pump fakes, then takes Thabeet to the hoop and somehow gets a half hook/half lay-up to go in - and gets the foul! Yet another insane shot from Rob Jones. Now he has a chance to extend the lead to two points from the line. 68-67 San Diego.
  • Jones misses the FT. Uh oh. Huskies can win with a bucket here.
  • Bad news for San Diego: Jerome Dyson takes as much time off the clock as he can, then drives the lane. The Toreros are called for a block. UConn can win it with two shots here. Brandon Johnson has fouled out. Two guys out and Huskies on the line - has the magic run out here?
  • Dyson to shoot a pair with 9 seconds to go. The first of two goes - and that ties it. This next one is for the lead. Dyson nails it, and UConn is up one. Big time shot for Dyson! 69-68 UConn
  • Jones crosses midcourt and San Diego takes a timeout to draw up a play. Good call from the bench.
