Thanks to DeaconSports via YouTube for the following video clip from today's 62-61 overtime win in Raleigh against North Carolina State.

The Gators, who were 2-23 from three-point range before Parsons' bomb, stole a win today, in a game which pitted two evenly matched teams.

A couple of very strange ironies for me during this game:

1. It's the first entire game I've "watched" (actually listened to it via the Internet) all year.

2. One of my dear friends is on vacation in California with his wife (there to see the Gators in the BCS Championship Game..... but that's another story). Anyway, he texted me with under a minute to go in the game. He was watching the game in his hotel while I listened to it back here in NJ. And his last text was, "Could this be a Miracle in Raleigh?"

You can't make it up.

These sorts of wins often end up defining a team's season.

Let's hope so.

Where can I comment?
