Stanford Defeats Oregon State, 103-101, in 4 OTs

New, 4 comments

Being on the East Coast, I don't always plan my Saturday nights around the Stanford basketball schedule. Really. Still, if the game is on locally, I'll DVR it to watch, usually with a lot of fast forwarding, when I get home. Such was the case tonight. Stupidly, I didn't add any extra time to the recording, and it cut out with 1 minute to play in regulation, the game still very much in doubt.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that Stanford prevailed, 103-101, IN FOUR OVERTIMES! Chasson Randle scored a game-high 24 points, including the game-winning layup with 37 seconds remaining in that fourth overtime. It was the longest game in program history, according to the brief AP recap on GoStanford. If you watched the four overtimes, please enlighten us as to what exactly happened in the comments. This game must qualify as a ROOT Sports instant classic, so I'll keep an eye out for the replay sometime this week.
