The clock has struck midnight on this Cinderella story tonight.
With 3.1 seconds left, the Arkansas Razorbacks got themselves the game-winning shot to edge the 15-seed Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, 72-70.
But the Golden Eagles had a chance to win the game as Oral Roberts’ star player Max Abmas hailed up a three, but it clanks off the rim, sealing the Razorbacks’ win.
Even though they took the Razorbacks to the brink, you can’t fault their great performance that Oral Roberts has in had this tournament. The team did upset Ohio State and Florida on route to the Sweet Sixteen, matching Florida Gulf Coast’s rally.
We’re proud of you, Golden Eagles. Hope to see you all more in the tourney in the future.
