Canyon Barry’s LeBron-esque block is the great play that nobody will remember (Yahoo Sports)

Canyon Barry's LeBron-esque block is the great play that nobody will remember

The play before the play began with a fly pattern, 15 feet of separation, and a ball, flying through the tension-filled Madison Square Garden air to its target and seemingly to the Elite Eight. Nobody will talk about what happened next, because what happened after what happened next was the greatest shot of the 2017 NCAA tournament, and arguably one of the great shots in NCAA tournament history. There was Khalil Iverson, racing down the floor of the world’s most famous arena, about to put Wisconsin up four with 36 seconds to play.

These photos of Florida's buzzer-beater are almost as incredible as the shot itself

Florida is heading to the Elite 8 thanks to a dramatic, overtime buzzer-beater from Chris Chiozza. The shot, the first buzzer-beater of the tournament, was incredibly captured by photographers from the Associated Press and Getty. This buzzer-beater sent Florida to the Elite 8 (AP). Julio Cortez of the AP and Maddie Meyer of Getty each artfully snapped Chiozza’s shot from opposing angles, showing Chiozza mid-air as Wisconsin and Florida players watched with baited breath.

De’Aaron Fox upstages Lonzo Ball, powers Kentucky to the Elite Eight (Yahoo Sports)

De'Aaron Fox upstages Lonzo Ball, powers Kentucky to the Elite Eight

The insipid debate over whether Lonzo Ball is better than Steph Curry ended abruptly on Friday night when it became clear the heralded UCLA freshman may not even be college basketball’s premier point guard. Fellow freshman De’Aaron Fox staked his claim to that title with a performance for the ages in second-seeded Kentucky’s 86-75 Sweet 16 victory over the Bruins. Unquestionably the fastest point guard in college basketball, Fox erupted for a career-best 39 points by blowing past flat-footed UCLA defenders off the dribble over and over and finishing with ease around the rim.
