The UC Irvine Anteaters should change their name to the UC Irvine Gamblers after last night’s game against Cal Poly, which they won 78-72 in overtime. Why the name change? Well, take a look at the video below to see how overtime was forced!
Well, that’s one way to get 7-foot-6 Mamadou Ndiaye involved, isn’t it? Just lob a dangerous baseball pass down the court at him, then he passes crosscourt to a shooter on the wing and then, tie game! Hats off to coach Russell Turner for drawing that play up and keeping the Anteaters atop the Big West, but maybe NOT giving the fans a heart attack in the final seconds next time would be a better idea?
