Found January 06, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

It may or may not have been the way Louisiana-Lafayette coach Bob Marlin drew it up, but taplay with six men on the floor certainly worked to give the Ragin-Cajuns a 72-70 win over Western Kentucky Thursday night. With 21 seconds left in overtime, Louisiana-Lafayette took the floor with six players.

As the video shows, Elfrid Payton's lay-up with three seconds left was the difference. How the Hilltoppers didn't notice that there were six opponents on the floor until after the game was over is beyond me.

But, After the buzzer, a Western Kentucky coach immediately approached the referee, who huddled with other game officials. They let the play stand and left the court, according to Michael Schroeder, assistant director of athletic communications/media relations for Western Kentucky.



WKU has filed a protest but Schroeder said it was done when they were caught up in the "emotion of the moment" and that the Hilltoppers were going to sit back and re-assess things.
