These are the types of endings that make the NCAA Tournament special each year. The Marquette Golden Eagles trailed for much of the second half against 14-seed Davidson, and most college basketball fans were anticipating a monster upset. But in the final 1:49, Marquette came alive draining threes and forcing enough turnovers to give itself a chance. Trailing 58-57 with just over five seconds left to play (after an unbelievable Davidson turnover), Marquette’s Vander Blue drove hard to the hoop and put his team up one with just a second remaining. Davidson had one final chance to go for the win, but turned it over trying to inbound the ball on the last play. Here’s a video of Davidson’s critical mistake and Vander Blue’s game-winner: It’s underselling Vander Blue’s to just call it a ‘layup.’ Full speed, off-hand finish… that is not easy, esp w/ defender right there — Jonathan Reed (@bigskybball) March 21, 2013 Vander Blue needs to quit wasting everybody’s time & just make his name all one word. Like Vanderbilt, or another example I can’t think of. — Kevin Roché (@kevROSHAY) March 21, 2013 I screamed like a girl when Vander Blue made that game-winning shot. #MarchMadnessBaby — Matthew Unrue (@MattUnrue) March 21, 2013
