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.

How De’Aaron Fox ended Lonzo Ball’s college career and lifted Kentucky to the brink of another Final Four (Yahoo Sports)
Soft-spoken, mild-mannered, understated LaVar Ball wants you to believe his oldest son, Lonzo, is the greatest point guard of all time. In the real world, virtually all analysts believe Ball is one of the top two point guards in the 2017 draft class, …

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.

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.

Wyking Jones will be the next head coach of Cal’s men’s basketball team. Cal made a surprising coaching hire on Friday that hints at some of the financial issues facing its athletic department. The Bears promoted assistant Wyking Jones to head coach just nine days after Cuonzo Martin resigned to take over at Missouri.

Sean Miller and Arizona come up short yet again after late collapse fueled by ill-advised shots (Yahoo Sports)
As Arizona tried in vain to account for how it squandered an eight-point lead in less than four minutes against 11th-seeded Xavier, sophomore guard Allonzo Trier shot down one popular explanation. Trier insists poor shot selection wasn’t the reason the Wildcats failed to score on their last six possessions of their 73-71 loss. “At least for me, I feel good about all the ones I took,” Trier said.
