No offense to the First Four games held earlier in Dayton, Ohio, but the 2014 NCAA tournament really got started just after 12 p.m. ET on March 20 in Buffalo when Ohio State and Dayton squared off.
It was a great game from start to finish, with the upstart Flyers showing early they had upset on their minds. Vee Sanford put No. 11 seed Dayton up 60-59 on a runner with 3.8 seconds left, but that was more than enough time for OSU senior point guard Aaron Craft to pull out another miracle.
Instead, Craft's length-of-the-court drive ended with a miss on a 10-foot jumper as time expired.
As Dayton's players ran to cheer with their benchmates, Craft dropped to the floor, put his hands behind his head and began to let the fact that his college career was over settle in.
He also gave us a heck of a picture—one that instantly became a viral sensation thanks to Twitter.
