From Ainge to Fredette: 10 other wild BYU basketball games, besides Portland

WAC Tournament, March 14, 1992: BYU 73, UTEP 71 Next » 1 of 10 « Prev


With a berth to the NCAA Tournament on the line, things looks bleak with the Cougars trailing the Miners 71-70 with 2.4 seconds remaining in the WAC Tournament final. Plus, BYU had to advance the ball from its own end of the court. But Kevin Nixon made magic happen that day, taking the inbounds pass deep on BYU's end, dribbling up the side of the court and letting a shot fly a few feet beyond midcourt. Nixon's shot was true, hitting nothing but net and sending the Cougars to the NCAAs.

I am surprised there is no mention of the UCLA/BYU game played in Provo in March, 1965 in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

The drive to win. Greg Ballif got way too little credit in this game. He's the reason we were close in the second half. Ainge really didn't have a great game but for the last play, as awesome as it was. A lot of future, long time NBA players on the floor that day...

What, no Congdon, Raymond, Fairchild, Liimo, Eakins, Cosic, Nemelka, et. al. mentions? As usual, "Top This and Top That" lists have very short memories and seem to cater to those of young & recent vintage. Except for maybe Danny Ainge, this one's no different.
