Best Aggie since Estes.

Remarkable tournament from him.

He knows we last won an NCAA game in 2001. I think he is ready to lead the team to a win plus one to the sweet sixteen?

And he was fouled. Should have been a 4 point play.

Game winning shot while guarded by Feagin - the guy that CBS showed as owning Merrill. Statistically may be the best player in MWC tournament history.

Yes. Someone has to splice Hoosiers and this play together

Did Dave Hall swallow his whistle on Sam’s shot or was it another ref?

Sam hit 2 NBA distance 3s - each to give the team a lead. Over Flynn to take a lead while trailing. And over Feagin for the game winner when tied.

It's worth noting that Flynn was the conference DPOY. And Feagin 'owned' Merrill this year.

Sometimes, you just can't keep a Good Sam down.

Funny thing is my Dad was there in attendance and when we got down 16 in the first half he made the comment that it felt like Hoosiers when they take that first timeout and coach Dale says " Maybe we shouldn't even be here!"

If you look at the right side of the screen you can see Larry Spaulding pointing to the baseline saying San stepped out of bounds. Dave Hall waived him off saying, “No! They can review that in the last 2 minutes”

It's Sam's world right now. I'm just happy to be riding along.

Going from that loss to NM to a win over SD? Horrified that we might get kicked out of post season contention by NM or Wyo, to just hoping that we don't get embarrassed by SD.......... To conference champs?

Priceless!

I don't do twitter but I saw this... From Stats By STATS

"Sam Merrill in the Mountain West tourney the last 2 years for @USUBasketball:

23 pts - W
22 pts - W
24 pts - W
29 pts - W
27 pts - W
27 pts - W

He's the only Division I player in the last 20 years to have 20+ points in 6 straight conference tourney games while winning them all."
