THIS IS MARCH - ORAL ROBERTS ACTUALLY DID IT! THEY ARE IN THE SWEET 16

Holy shit, I can't even believe this is happening. Oral Roberts had to make a run and escape in the Summit League Tournament. They had to beat Ohio State in OT. Now they come back to beat Florida. Welcome to forever being March legends, Max Abmas and Kevin Obanor. How'd they follow up 30 and 29 against Ohio State? Ho hum 28 and 26. Dunk City and Oral Roberts. The only 15 seeds to make a Sweet 16. Just unreal. 

What's wild is ORU was strictly an offensive team all year. They held Florida scoreless the last 2:30 of the game. Florida was in control of this game. ORU had no business winning it. Yet they didn't stop. A three in the corner by DeShang Weaver gave them the lead with 2:10 left. Then just one point, a free throw late. They got stops. Just an unreal performance again out of Oral Roberts.

Hell, even their fans showed up. Sure it's a weird ass school where dancing isn't even allowed. I'm not kidding. It's a rule at the school. Yet we see this. 

Fans just going nuts for something known as The Dance. The irony isn't lost on me. The entire arena was going wild for Oral.

Now they get Arkansas and we all get to enjoy Oral again. Hell that game alone is going to be awesome. Two teams that fly around offensively and get up and down the court. Yes please. Give me entertaining games in the Sweet 16. Oral Roberts is playing with free money at this point anyways. What a fucking Tournament man. Just the best.
