Two of the most amazing college games of the year and they are not from the NCAA "Big Dance".

Yesterday I switched on the TV to check what time the UCLA game was going to be on and the NCAA Division II final was about half over. Well, I had never heard of Winona State or Barton College but that did not stop me from watching the second half. I found out that Winona State hasn't lost in over a year and are the heavy favorites in the game. The clip starts with about 45 seconds left in regulation. Winona State has the ball and is at the line with a six point lead. I don't want to say more, just enjoy...




Game #2. Concordia University Irvine (my Alma Mater) was involved in a tremendous four overtime game with favored Robert Morris University in the semi-finals of the NAIA national tournament. They made an amazing shot at the end of the first OT to send it to a second, then an amazing shot that sent it to a third OT and then a truely unreal shot to send it to a fourth OT where they pulled ahead for good. Unfortunately the Eagles ran out of gas and lost the next night in the finals. Enjoy the clip.

    Alright, my previous comment was regarding the Concordia game. I just watched the Winona St. game===HOLY COW! What a game. I especially loved the Barton players from the court running behind the basket in childlike joy, that's the best!
