Nevada trailed by as much as many as 25 points in the second half of Saturday’s Mountain West college hoops contest against New Mexico. They were down 14 with just over a minute to go.
What followed is one of the the best late-game comebacks in recent college basketball history.
Nevada’s Jordan Caroline finished with a game-high 45 points, and led the comeback with a flurry of threes, including the game-tying bucket to send it to overtime, and the game winner, down 2 with two seconds left in OT.
The Wolfpack capped of the comeback in the extra period to get the improbable 105-104 win. Nevada is now 14-3 on the year.
Caroline’s performance is reminiscent of Reggie Miller’s performance against the Knicks in the 1995 NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
Here’s a video of the entire comeback. It may induce severe flashbacks if your name is Spike Lee:
