Crazy finish to Arizona State’s victory over #2 Arizona in Double OT

Hopefully when Friday’s All-Star festivities was over you switched over to the controversial Arizona and Arizona State ending that involved two instances of the Sun Devil’s fans rushing the court after they beat #2 Arizona in double OT.

“In terms of college basketball, that’s as good as it gets,” said Arizona State coach Herb Sendek “Obviously, the game could have gone either way, but I stand in awe at the players on both teams and their ability to perform on a stage like that, in such conditions; they really have my total respect.”

Arizona owned a 63-59 lead with under two minutes left in the second OT after Gordon drove the lane and scored on consecutive possessions, but Marshall buried a pair of 3-pointers around two Tarczewski free throws to forge a 65-65 tie with 55.6 seconds remaining.

Gordon was fouled on the Wildcats’ ensuing trip and made the second try to put the Pac-12 leaders back up by one. Following a timeout, Marshall then dribbled into the lane with a head of steam before throwing up a shot underneath the basket that landed through for a 67-66 ASU edge.

Arizona hurried back up the court as McConnell drove to the basket, but Bachynski — the Pac-12’s all-time leader in blocks — swatted away the shot that led a run-out which ended with Carson throwing down a clinching slam just before the buzzer.
