What a run, and what a collapse.
With 31 seconds left in the game, No. 11-seeded Northern Iowa led No. 3-seeded Texas A&M, 69-57.
Then the Aggies tore off a 14-2 run, capped by a game-tying bucket from Admon Gilder, to force overtime.
It was improbable, to say the least:

But hey, it's March.
Texas A&M fans couldn't believe their eyes:
The game went into double overtime with the score tied at 83, and Texas A&M pulled out a 92-88 win. The Aggies will face the second-seeded Oklahoma Sooners on Thursday in the Sweet 16.
