Last night, the Baylor men’s basketball team defeated Texas A&M 116-110 in a quintuple overtime slugfest. Although 5 Baylor players fouled out, the team actually hit its free throws to get the win.
The game lasted so long that even one of the referees got confused. In the break before the start of the fourth overtime, a referee approached a member of the media and asked if triple overtime was about to begin. When told it was four, he shook his head and walked off.
While BU women’s basketball has been good for some time (winning a national title a few years ago), the men’s squad hasn’t been ranked in the top 25 since 1969.
