Furman University’s Jalen Slawson could not feel the mistake the University of Virginia made on Thursday, and he designed it identified all through the tunnel walk to the locker place. (Look at the movies beneath.)
Slawson and his underdog teammates had just defeated No. 4 seed Virginia in the NCAA Tournament’s 1st massive upset of the day. But it might not have happened if Virginia’s Kihei Clark hadn’t heaved the ball in a stress as he was getting double-teamed in the closing seconds.
The ball was intercepted by Furman, enabling JP Pegues to hit a 3-pointer that won the game 68-67. Clark could have known as timeout (as could have mentor Tony Bennett) so Virginia could hold possession. But the stress of March Insanity may well have played a element.
“He just freakin’ threw the ball!” an incredulous Slawson stated in a clip shared by Brendan Marks of The Athletic.
A distraught Clark, who played on Virginia’s 2019 NCAA championship crew and has had a good higher education career, could not have believed it possibly.
“Sucks for it to finish like this,” he said.
