OK, actually it was Barton College from Wilson, NC that won the Division II Championship, but this was an amazing finish:
There are at least three explanations as to why Winona State let this game slip away:
- I bet on them to win. (I don't think I did, but I can't remember everything I do.)
- Joey Meyer or some other DePaul coach instructed the Warriors in the art of free throw shooting.
- Tim Floyd somehow made his way to Springfield, MA to coach Winona State for the final 45 seconds.
Oh well, although the students and fans of Winona State in Minnesota are probably disappointed now, they only have three more months until the warmer sun of Spring brightens their moods. -KD
