VCU G JeQuan Lewis fouls on 3-pointer, sends game to overtime (Video)

VCU JeQuan Lewis

VCU blew a 10-point lead with 3:38 to go against Stephen F. Austin in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday and ended up going to overtime after a bad foul in a game they eventually lost.

The Rams were up 67-63 with 10.5 seconds left and appeared to have the game all locked up, but Jordan Burgess missed two free throws to keep it a 4-point game. The Lumberjacks then ran in transition and gave the ball to Desmond Haymon, who made a 3-pointer while being fouled.

Haymon certainly flopped somewhat on the play, but JeQuan Lewis still fouled him while being super aggressive on the close-out.

The terrible ending for VCU cost them as they lost 77-75 in OT. Lewis also missed a wide open 3-pointer on VCU’s last shot of the game in overtime.
