Xavier 62, Ohio State 62 (end of regulation)
So we had to wait an entire two days for a massive upset…Albeit one that could’ve ended the pool hopes and dreams of, I dunno, me? Ron Lewis’ heroics were so astonishing, even Gary Cohen had to interrupt play by play of the Mets’ crucial exhibition with the Nats (DC leading 13-0 thru 7) to spread the word. Oden’s gone, hopefully commiserating with Ben Gazzari in the dressing room.
(FINALE : OSU 78, Xavier 71, OT. Not since Yo La Tengo’s ‘Ride The Tiger’ have a duo with the names Lewis and Conley been such a formidable combination)
