98-97 WKU; :21 in O.T.

  • Question of the Night: What are the odds Tom and I will ever see a Fairfield game in overtime have a score like 93-92 and an insane crowd like this one? Text to MIRROR your answers.
  • 20 on the shot clock for Drake as they inbound.
  • BIG time shot and make for Young from three. Redick like trigger from that young man. 96-92 Drake.
  • First shot is off from Western, but an offensive rebound draws a foul and they stay alive. Ty Rogers goes to the line.
  • Rogers hits the back end of the one-and-one. 96-93 Drake with 1:45 to play.
  • NBA range three misses for Drake. They had to with the clock winding down.
  • Tyrone Brazelton hits a big time three. WOW! This guy is out of his mind right now. 33 for Brazelton (12 of the teams last 13). Drake steals after their own miss to keep their chances alive. :35 to go and we are tied at 96.
  • Leonard Huston is fouled? Beats me, and it looks like the Western Kentucky bench is stumped too. In any event, Huston gets a chance to put Drake on top.
  • With :30 left, (get ready for this one) Huston hits the first, misses the second, Brazelton grabs it and goes all the way, tries a lay-up, WKU misses a tip back, and again, then a fight for the board ends in a Klayton Korver foul. He is out of the game now.
  • Boris Siakham goes to the line for a pair. HUGE shots here.
  • First is good. We are tied at 97. Oh, boy.
  • Second is GOOD. Hilltoppers take a one-point lead. 98-97 WKU with :21 to go.
  • Drake takes a T.O. to talk things over.
