Nevada Takes Down Texas In Bizarre Finish

Nevada faces off against Texas.

The second day of the 2018 NCAA Tournament has begun. We're already knee deep in upset attempts.

The Texas Longhorns nearly pulled off another, but failed in devastating fashion.

Texas did everything possible to throw away the game with time running out. With the game tied at 68 and 3.8 seconds left on the clock, an inbounds pass from Texas went awry, giving the ball back to Nevada with 1.6 seconds left to win it.

Lucky for the Longhorns, a shot from the Wolf Pack was just short, forcing overtime. Unfortunately for the Longhorns Nevada dominated the overtime period, going 6-for-6 in the extra five minutes, including 3-for-3 on three-pointers.

No. 7 Nevada defeated No. 10 Texas by a final score of 87-83. The Wolf Pack will now face off against No. 2 Cincinnati on Sunday.
