The Ole Miss Rebels were about two seconds away from advancing to the next round of the SEC Tournament on Thursday. They had a one point lead against the South Carolina Gamecocks. Tyrone Johnson took the inbound pass for the Gamecocks near half court and ran across launching a desperation three as time expired.
Well, Ole Miss was whistled for a foul sending Johnson to the line for three shots. Johnson hit all three and the Gamecocks win in dramatic fashion by two points leaving the Ole Miss fans with a hole in their stomachs. Like former Rebels star Marshall Henderson who couldn’t believe it when the foul was called.
South Carolina will move on to face Georgia in the quarterfinals while Ole Miss awaits Selection Sunday.
