USF vs. George Mason Haiku. 18-0 Run For The Win!!

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Worst. First. Half. Ever.

Then an eighteen zero run

Holy crap that happened

That wasn't a well-played basketball game, but it sure as hell was dramatic. USF was down 53-36 with just over 13 minutes to play in the game... and then went on an 18-0 run to make it 54-53. There were steals! There were stops!! There was Anthony Collins making 4 straight free throws after getting fouled and then kicked while laying on the ground by Anali Okojoli. And then more steals, more runouts, and more awesome.

And then Corey Allen hits a 10 foot fadeaway in the dying seconds to pull out an amazing win.

How nuts was this game? Here's some of my completely schizophrenic Twitter feed from the last two hours:

And I apologize for none of it. USF looked like they left their legs and heart in Tampa, and somehow turned it around that dramatically. This team certainly needs work, and they're going to need to get better because this isn't going to be good enough to win in the AAC, but at least they showed some passion in pulling out a win. If there is such a thing as momentum in sports, ride it into Alabama on Saturday please.

UPDATE: Some quotes from Stan Heath via @D1scourse after the game:

That lineup Heath was talking about was Anthony Collins, Allen, Javonte Hawkins, Vic Rudd, and Chris Perry. We'll see if we see more of that Saturday against 'Bama.
