Morehead State stuns Louisville

Morehead State Donnie Tyndall said he didn't want his star guard Demonte Harper to drive on his team's last possession. He wanted him to pull up from long distance to carry his team to victory.

Harper listened and drained a three-pointer with 4.2 seconds left to lift No.13 Morehead State to a 62-61 win over No.4 Louisville. It's the third straight year a 13 beat a 4.

"I don’t want you to drive it. I want you to hard-studder and pull up," Tyndall said he told Harper during the final timeout. 

The biggest play of the game probably came on the other end of the floor as Kenneth Faried blocked a three-point attempt by Louisville's Mike Marra as time expired to preserve the win. At first glance it looked like a foul. But the replays clearly showed Faried stood his ground and made a clean block.
