24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield went off for 46 points in a triple-OT thriller against the No.1 ranked Kansas Jayhawks last night. Surprisingly his 46 points were not enough to win the game, but man did the kid get some serious respect for his showing.
Following the game legendary commentator Dick Vitale gave him a handshake and had some good words for him, Jayhawks fans also stuck around to give Hield a standing ovation as he left the arena.
