On Sunday, the No. 7 Nevada Wolf Pack pulled off an insane comeback over No. 2 Cincinnati, going up by two points with nine seconds remaining after earlier falling behind the Bearcats by 22 points with just 11 minutes left on the clock.
On a last-gasp effort, Cincinnati failed to convert, handing the Wolf Pack an improbable victory nobody saw coming.
WHAT A COMEBACK!!

According to Gambletron — which uses market betting numbers — Nevada’s comeback against Cincy was more unlikely than Patriots over Falcons, and it’s not even close https://t.co/GdNrqB4XUL pic.twitter.com/2uJn1RL0Fc

Nevada just won the race on the last corner of the last lap after being 3 laps down with 50 to go.

And Nevada comes back from 22 down to beat Cincy and advance to the Sweet 16. This is one of the most entertaining tournaments ever. EVER.

Nevada was down 22 and came back to win. But bad news for them….They now have to play against @RamblersMBB and Sister Jean!
