When games get into the Round of 32 they are either going to be blowouts or nail biters--nothing in between. Teams pas the first round either got lucky or know how to ball. Over the weekend we saw plenty of both.
The Sunday game between Ohio State and upset minded Iowa State was definitely one of the good ones.
This one ended in a way that is typically meant more for the movies than reality.
OSU's Aaron Craft had the ball on on the perimeter; the shot clock was off. No. 10 seed Iowa State had give the Buckeyes all they could handle; the score was knotted at 75-75.
Either the final shot of the game was going to belong to Craft or the Cyclones were going to get another chance at completing the upset in overtime. It's at times like this where a player finds out if he is clutch or not.
If you've watched the video then you know what Aaron Craft is.
Oh--and yes, much like Wesley Snipes's jump shot Craft's is pretty. So pretty. But I don't know if he's going to Sizzler (do they still exist?).
