But it wasn’t easy.
As time ran down in overtime, Mississippi State guard Morgan William got a fairly open look at a jumper just to the right of the foul line and sunk it to shock the masses.

A number of incredible reactions from folks in the stands were captured on video. For example, Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Mississippi State alum Dak Prescott was absolutely elated.

They lost to UConn by 60 a year ago. Beat ‘em tonight to get to the national championship game. God, I love sports.

A bettor, thinking it was sure money, put $7,000 on UConn to win straight up tonight.
Would have netted $100.
Guy just lost $7,000.
