In a drama-filled game in Austin, Texas, the Baylor Bears took home a 74-73 win in double overtime thanks to Jo Lual-Acuil Jr.’s game-winning slam dunk.
The senior grabbed Manu Lecomte’s missed layup out of midair with under 10 seconds left and flushed it home with two hands. The Longhorns had a shot on the other end of the court, but couldn’t make a bucket.
