Purdue Forward Commits Ultimate Brain Fart In Final Seconds Of Regulation vs. Little Rock

Purdue player makes a big mistake against Little Rock.

Update: Edwards was asked after the contest about the final play of regulation. He says he made a mental error - he simply didn't know either the score or how much time was left when he got the ball.

Earlier: We've got our first classic March Madness moment of the 2016 NCAA Tournament.

Little Rock, the No. 12 seed, rallied from a 13-point deficit in the final four minutes and tied fifth-seeded Purdue on a ridiculous three-pointer by guard Josh Hagins with just seconds to play.

On the ensuing inbounds pass, Purdue's Vince Edwards caught the ball and...did nothing. Edwards stared up-court for a few seconds, either expecting his coach would call timeout or because he lost track of the score and time.

We've never seen anything like that happen. Little Rock eventually prevailed in overtime, 85-83.
