Lofton's Great Shot Lifts Tennessee?: Am I the only person in the world who thinks this guy travelled on this play? I haven't been able to find video yet. Anybody who has please post it.

I thought the same thing in real-time, but after seeing slow-mo, I think it was clean. I woulda liked to see Winthrop pull it off, but ... Pretty amazing shot.

It was clean, but Winthrop really deserved to win. They played with so much more heart than Tennessee. The Vols didn't deserve such aa high seed.

I thought the same thing, but in the slow-mo, everyone at the bar (about 4 people) counted his steps. All Winthrop had to do was hit 2 points sometime in that 5 minutes.

Wow...and to think a friend of mine has Tennessee winning this whole tourney. Not if they play this way on Saturday. Granted, I bet they take what they learned from Thursday's game and have a solid showing on Saturday. Its the least they can do. They're gone in the Sweet 16

I had Winthrop going to the Final Four in my coin flip bracket. That sucked.

I dont care if it was clean or not, it wouldve been a much better game had Winthrop won. They deserved it, they worked much harder.
