Of course, the shot of the day was Ty Rogers' buzzer-beater in overtime that sent Western Kentucky into the second round and Drake into despair. Where exactly does Rogers' shot rank among the all-time great buzzer-beaters? Here's our top 10:
1. Christian Laettner, Duke, 1992
After taking a court-length pass from Grant Hill, Laettner buried a shot from the foul line to beat Kentucky in OT in perhaps the best NCAA game ever, sending Duke to the Final Four.
2. Lorenzo Charles, N.C. State, 1983
Charles dunked home a missed shot at the buzzer in the Wolfpack's upset of Houston's Phi Slamma Jamma in the 1983 national title game.
3. Danny Ainge, BYU, 1981
Ainge dribbled the length of the court and made a layup as time expired to upset second-seeded Notre Dame in the East region semifinals.
4. Bryce Drew, Valparaiso, 1998
No. 13 Valpo goes the length of the court in 2.5 seconds, and Drew hits a 3-pointer to upset No. 4 Ole Miss.
5. Mike Miller, Florida, 2000
Gator fans remember this one well. Miller hit a shot at the buzzer to beat No. 12 Butler in the first round. Florida reached the final, where it lost to Michigan State.
6. Tyus Edney, UCLA, 1995
Like Ainge, Edney raced the length of the court and made a layup to allow UCLA to escape a second-round upset to Missouri. UCLA went on to win the national championship.
7. Ty Rogers, Western
Maybe the game of the year in college basketball, and it ended with Rogers drilling a 27-footer at the buzzer in overtime for an upset of No. 5 Drake.
8. Christian Laettner, Duke, 1990
Before he broke Kentucky hearts in 1992, Laettner sent Duke to the 1990 Final Four by beating UConn with a shot as time expired.
9. Tate George, UConn, 1990
The only reason UConn faced Duke in the 1990 East Final was because the Huskies went the length of the court in one second and beat Clemson on George's shot at the horn.
10. U.S. Reed, Arkansas, 1981
Reed made a prayer from halfcourt as Arkansas eliminated defending champ Louisville in the second round.
Sorry, Western Kentucky, but that Big Red thingy? Doesn't even make a good Teletubby.
Number of the day
0 That's how many field goals Drake's Adam Emmenecker made in 10 attempts. Emmenecker, the Missouri Valley Conference player of the year, had 14 assists and 11 points, but all of those points came from the free-throw line.
