What Had Happened Was: 2/3/17
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
Miah Spencer didn’t succeed the first time she tried to give her No. 19 North Carolina State team the winning points against No. 9 Louisville, but she tried again when the teams went into overtime — and this time, she found the bottom of the net.
The 5-foot-8 senior guard lifted a floater up at the buzzer that left Spencer, her Wolfpack teammates and the Cardinals in suspense as the basketball teetered around the rim. Ultimately, the ball dropped and N.C. State defeated Louisville, 72-70, in overtime on Thursday night.
Spencer made 11 of 17 shots and accounted for 22 points in the Wolfpack’s upset over their ACC rival.
