The Ultimate Faces Of Relief

Memphis survived an upset bid from St. Mary's. And boy, did they look relieved.

Down by five with seven seconds to go, 11-seed St. Mary's hit this absurd bank three to get within two of 6-seed Memphis.

Then, even more absurdly, they forced Memphis to turn the ball over on the inbounds. All of a sudden, St. Mary's had the opportunity to tie or win after being down by five seconds before.

Memphis was nervous, as you might expect.

But, after playing solid defense on the inbounds, Memphis forced a tough last-second heave that went long. Memphis wins a nail-biter, and those dudes were RELIEVED.
