Game of the Year?

Everyone who thought the Texas-Oklahoma State triple-overtime game in Stillwater in January was college basketball's game of the year, raise your hand?

Yes, mine is up.

Of course, that's the answer I would have given before watching last night's Texas A&M-Texas game. You know, the double-overtime thriller that was about 3 inches away from a third OT.

While Kevin Durant, Texas' all-everything freshman, has made his case for national player of the year honors, A&M's Acie Law IV made his case for enshrinement in college basketball's all-time clutch shooters hall of fame.

With 1.4 seconds left in regulation, Law drilled a 22-foot 3-pointer over Durant, who's only 6-9. With 27 seconds left in overtime, Law connected on another game-tying 3. Add those to the 3 to beat the Longhorns last year in College Station and his game-winning 3 at Kansas in January and it's hard to count A&M out and easy to count on Law in crunch time.
