    They describe Hornacek's shot as a twenty footer. I thought it was well outside that, more like a twenty-five footer.

    He would have had to hop forward to reach the 25 foot mark.

    Surprised West Virginia (Coach Beilein, Pittsnogle, Gansey) -Wake Forest (Chris Paul) from 2005 didn't make it for the 2nd round. Epic battle in 2 OTs.

    Either way, it is selling it pretty short to call it a 20 footer.

    It was about a 20 footer, right about where the 3 point line would be:

    In that video, he's maybe 2 feet behind where the 3 point line would be. So 21 feet?

    The three point line is at almost 21 feet so if he is 2 feet beyond it as you suggest it is quite a bit beyond 20 feet.

    Looks pretty deep to me, but it's not worth arguing over.

    Interesting concept.

    That 2000 Elite 8 game was headed toward epic finish until everything went off the rails .... that might've been in this bracket. *Sigh*
