Ty Rogers hit a 3-pointer with three
defenders in his face and no time on the clock, and 12th-seeded
Western Kentucky stunned Drake 101-99 in overtime Friday in the
first round of the NCAA tournament's West Regional.
The fifth-seeded Bulldogs (28-5) overcame a 16-point deficit in
the final 8 minutes of regulation and led 99-98 after Jonathan
Cox's two free throws with 5.7 seconds to play. But Tyrone
Brazelton raced across the court and kicked it to Rogers, who
drained the biggest shot of his life to give the Hilltoppers (28-6)
their first tournament victory since 1995.
