Complete insanity:a step from victory with only three players
Alabama and Minnesota created one of the most crazy and strange matches adviced by free video online ever played in college basketball. The meeting ended with Minnesota`s victory and 89:84, but the interesting thing in the case was that their rivals whose coach was none other than Avery Johnson played the final 10 minutes with three players on the pitch. That`s right, three against five! The whole bench of Alabama was disqualified 13:43 minutes before the end of the match, when the seven reserves plunged into the field when the players of the two teams were pulled away, and as a result they were expelled by the judges. Thus, Crimson Tai actually remained with only the five players on the pitch.
But the woes were just beginning and Dawn Ingram left the game for personal misconduct, leaving Alabama with four players, and shortly thereafter, John Peti was injured and also left a 67:54 game for the rival. Alabama has been protected from personal disturbances in the remaining 11 minutes, which have become an absolute classic. The trio of Johnson`s team plunged to the pinnacle of its capabilities and wiped out a two-digit lag behind, but remained on the brink of a unique feat. Colin Sexton captured the match and moved closer to just 3 points - 83:80, after three minutes before the end was 10.
Still, the victory was for the team that had the numerical advantage, but this game will be talked for a long time. Sexton finished with 40 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, and he and his teammates scored 30 points against 22 for their rivals in the last 10:41 minutes of the game. Both coaches, Avery Johnson and Richard Pitino, who are the son of Rick Pitino`s controversial college game, said they never witnessed anything like this in their careers.
