North Carolina beats UT-Martin in dramatic fashion

This was a wild, wild game and not solely because UNC went on a 26-3 run to comeback and beat UT-Martin 60-58 in the first round of the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

With the announcement that UNC's campus was on lock down, UT-Martin essentially lost its timeout as everyone paid attention to that. It appeared that UT-Martin's coach Kevin McMillan was asking for additional time - a reasonable request given the nature of the public safety announcement - but the officials denied whatever he requested, forcing him to spend another timeout.

Naturally, UT-Martin came out and botched the final possession of the game, leaving a game-winning three to a player who hadn't taken a shot all game.

It was an unfortunate way to end a great season and strong tournament appearance for UT-Martin.
