For Pete's Sake

Watch Nevada basketball team erase a 14-point deficit in final 70 seconds of game

Well, this is ridiculous. Specifically, this is a collection of some of the most ridiculous three-pointers made in a frenzy comeback.

On Saturday, Nevada got a 105-104 overtime victory at New Mexico, even though the Wolfpack trailed by 25 points at one point.

Heck, Nevada was down by 14 with 1:10 left in the game and rallied to force overtime. How did the Wolfpack do it? Crazy three-point shots and a bunch of missed free throws by the Lobos. Never underestimate the power of missed free throws.

Take a look at the comeback thanks to the March Madness 2017 video:

“It’s the greatest win I’ve ever been a part of,” Nevada coach Eric Musselman told the Associated Press.

The AP reported that the 25-point comeback tied for the eighth largest second-half deficit overcome to win a game in NCAA history.

“You never know what can happen,” Nevada’s Jordan Caroline told the AP. “Keep playing. Keep scrapping. Keep fighting. And I felt like we showed great resilience as a team and perseverance and toughness.”
