The win at Northwestern last year was also pretty amazing.
It was. That's probably one of the ten best comebacks I've watched. What were we, down 14 with five minutes left? That was less surprising because we were one of the best defensive teams in the country and for a 4-5 minute stretch, they had no chance to take care of the ball when we started pressing. Then again, as ESPN.com's Dana O'Neil wrote last night, Clemson collapsing like that wasn't all that surprising if you think about it. They're prone to stuff like that.
Another comeback I can't leave out: Jason Williams leading Duke from 10 down with something like 58 seconds left to beat Maryland in 2001. How you gauge that against a 23-point comeback with 19 minutes left, I don't know, but that Duke comeback in '01 is somewhere in the top five I've seen also.
Oh, can't forget about the Seton Hall game in 2000. Down 42-21 late in the first half in a nationally televised game between a pair of Top 10 squads, came back to win in OT behind Frank Williams and Marcus Griffin. Unreal game that I missed in its entirety, because I was en route to watch my sister play an 8th grade state championship basketball game. I actually missed the start of her game to stay in the car and listen to the end of the Illinois game. I'm a terrible brother and I'm fine with that. She'd have done the same thing.
Anyway....so, yeah. The NBA knows the name BP3. I almost forgot what it's like when your players are good enough that you have to deal with the Association.
