I followed this game all last night and the more times I see the Youtube video, the more it looks like Lipscomb should've won their game against Arizona. Down in overtime, Nic Wise hit this game winner to get the Wildcats the win to avoid embarrasment. I've got the video on my site here , for those who haven't seen it.
Either way, since when Lipscomb start playing competitive games against Arizona? Oh, how the mighty have fallen. I'd love to hear your thoughts about the shot. Should it have counted? Should it have not counted?

For everyone that thought Arizona's NCAA Tournament streak was going to quietly end during a mediocre season, well guess again. The Wildcats roller coaster type season continued once again on Thursday night when the Wildcats knocked off #24 Washington.
For a team that has been completely torn about by a couple of crazy losses (UAB & USC included) this was a monster victory. There's a few reasons never to count Arizona out when it comes to NCAA Tournament bids. The main reason is the name on their jerseys (fair or not) and the tradition the Wildcats have. This team is going to be in the running one way or another for the rest of the season. This win (along with an amazing comeback against Houston) put them right back on the bubble.

But the Wildcats weren't the only big winner on Thursday night. Add Washington State (win over Arizona State), Minnesota (over Illinois), Utah State (over Nevada), UCLA (over California), Arkansas (over Alabama), and Clemson (over Virginia Tech).
Here's my 10 quick thoughts from Thursday night's college basketball action:
BRACKETOLOGY UPDATE: I promise to have one completed tomorrow afternoon hopefully. It will either be posted here on this CBS blog (or linked here) or on OSF. Thanks to everyone for being so patient on it. There is going to be a LOT of changes.
