Kansas State 101, Xavier 96 (2OT)
NCAA tournament Sweet 16 (March 25)
Thirteen lead changes, 17 ties, two overtimes and oh, so many clutch shots. This instant classic, played at a breakneck pace, was a battle of two dynamic backcourts: Xavier's Jordan Crawford and Terrell "Tu" Holloway vs. Kansas State's Jacob Pullen and Denis Clemente. Holloway converted three free throws at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime and Crawford (career-high 32 points) ripped a 35-foot three to tie it late in the first OT, but the second-seeded Wildcats prevailed after Pullen (28 points) hit two threes in the second extra period.
