LEXINGTON -- Just yesterday, during his media day press conference, Buzz Williams put it bluntly: "We can't shoot," he said.

But with their backs against the wall, trailing 14th-seeded Davidson by six with only a minute remaining in Thursday's second-round game, Williams' Golden Eagles decided to prove him wrong. First Jamil Wilson hit a three to halve the lead, after which Davidson's De'Mon Brooks answered with a layup. Then Vander Blue hit a three of his own with 28.7 seconds to play, after which the Wildcats' Nik Cochran hit two free throws. And then Wilson hit another three, this one to cut the lead to one with 10.5 seconds to go.

After the basket, Davidson leading 58-57, Brooks caught the inbound and tried to heave the ball up the floor and the ball careened toward the Davidson bench in the far court. Cochran caught it with one hand while stepping out of bounds, turning the ball over with 5.5 seconds left. Then, in a near mirror image of how he finished off St. John's in the Golden Eagles' season finale, Blue drove left for the go-ahead layup.

And so went the maddest minute of March so far.
