Nevada Has Best Comeback in NCAA Tournament History

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Sunday's win came on the heels of a 14-point comeback against No. 10 seed Texas in the first round, in which the Wolf Pack's probability of winning was just 8.7 percent.

The Wolf Pack didn't panic.

After a defensive stop, the Wolfpack took their first lead of the game with nine seconds left on a Josh Hall put-back floater.

Their comeback was already epic, but it got that much better when the Titanic music was added to it.

After the game, Musselman delivered an incredible postgame interview and turned up in the team locker room shortly after to celebrate with no shirt. Television cameras caught Musselman taking off his shirt as he headed into a boisterous locker-room celebration.

Cincinnati outrebounded Nevada 44-33 and outscored the Wolf Pack 20-9 in second-chance points but couldn't get that critical rebound with the game tied in the final minute. It's the happiest I've ever seen.

Barry Brown scored 18 points, and Kansas State ended UMBC's brief, but historic run in the NCAA Tournament with a victory.

Nevada moves on to face Loyola of Chicago in the Sweet 16 next week in Atlanta.

This year's NCAA Tournament truly embodies March Madness.

The Spartans took a school record 37 shots beyond the arc, making just eight of them.

Nevada is off to the Sweet 16. I couldn't be more proud of a team...every single player in there. They took their first lead of the night at 71-70 with about 1:08 left on PJ Savoy's transition 3. They finished 6 of 22 from 3-point range two nights after lighting up Virginia.
