You need to see how Vanderbilt forced OT last night

Vanderbilt couldn’t escape Fayetteville with a victory against the Razorbacks last night but the game did not lack excitement.

After Arkansas guard Anthlon Bell hit a three-pointer with two seconds remaining to put his team up two, Vanderbilt threw the ball the length of the court to hit Damian Jones, who tied the game up with an emphatic, buzzer-beating slam:

Arkansas would go on to win in OT, 90-85.

Jones finished with 24 points and 15 rebounds in the clash of two of the SEC’s best big men. Across the way, Moses Kingsley had 25 points and eight rebounds.

      Don’t worry, we will have two of the nation’s best big men again next year.

    IMO unless this team shows that it can rise to meet the challenge of opponents who come prepared to defend us like UCLA, OSU and LSU, then they will likely struggle to make the tournament. What I can’t figure out is why they don’t run the “weave” out front more regularly. I think that has really worked well for us at times, and it is the offensive set best suited to our guard oriented line-up with post players who are mostly limited to scoring right at the rim. Maybe the constant zones make that difficult? Anyhow, I think Cal should try it because I think it might help these guys to start making sharper cuts, create better spacing, and open up chances for effective ball screens and opportunities at the rim. They just seem completely lost as a team on offense, unable to respond to the blueprint that has been established for beating them.

    Aaaaaand, he was fouled on the play! Look at the slow mo, defender slaps his arm. Damn shame refs have no balls. I don’t care if it’s the last potentially game winning shot, the guy was clearly fouled.

      I didn’t see any contact. He took a swipe at the ball, but it looks like he got all air to me.

      Agree with you that the refs usually swallow their whistles on last minute game winners like that. They spent 15 minutes trying to spot Patrick Sparks’ foot on the line against Mich St, and ignored the fact that he was bumped on the shot.

    watching in slow-mo, stop action, it looks to me that his hand was still in contact with the ball at 0:00, and even though it was through the rim, I would say the shot isnt complete until it leaves his hand.
    Should have been waved off, although it was a very tough call to make.

    and someone this morning (maybe Matt) was saying we should win at Arkansas. How?

    He totally pushed off on the guy before catching the pass
