The 86-72 final score in Quinnipiac’s first-round victory over Miami (FL) belies what was actually a tense, back-and-forth game that didn’t get out-of-hand until a huge fourth quarter Quinnipac run. If you could distill all of its fun unpredictability into one possession, it would be this lead-taking Paula Strautmane lay-up, which only comes after about five or six hustle plays between both sides.


The Bobcats are going to need a lot more freaky possessions to go their way if they want to survive any further, though. They get the honor of facing UConn in the next round.
