The fifty minutes of a double-overtime game give everyone equal opportunity to be hero and goat -- oftentimes, all in the same contest. Wright's sparkplug junior guard had 20 points in regulation, but missed an opportunity to win the game with a wildly unsuccessful lane-drive at the buzzer; then he committed an untimely offensive foul in the first extra frame. He tied the game with a Dr. J finger-roll, then coughed it up on the next possession. Early in the second OT, he drove hard to the rim to keep Butler from putting together a run, and then hit the final free throw of the game that iced the Raider win. After the game, he was seen with a bright red gash on his shoulder, the end-result of contact on that end-of-regulation drive. With a game like this, goat horns just ain't gonna fit.
