News On The Horizon 1/25/2021

Colorado State is just Niko Medved’s latest rebuild: This Week in Mid-Major--The Athletic

Mid-bits

• Saturday brought plenty of weirdness that might have flown under your radar. UW-Milwaukee trailed Horizon League leader Cleveland State on the road by 14 points with 2:46 remaining. The Panthers somehow sent the game into overtime and won, 81-80.

• Buzzer beater time!

UIC’s Michael Diggins gets his Lorenzo Charles moment with this put-back of an air-balled Teyvion Kirk 3 to beat Youngstown State on Friday night. And it’s not even our favorite part of the clip. That would be Youngstown State’s Daniel Ogoro sliding waaayy out of bounds while trying to draw the charge on Kirk before the 3-point attempt.
