Ryan Luther’s Game-Winner Sends Herd That to TBT Quarterfinals



Pitt and Hampton alum Ryan Luther made the game-winning layup as Herd That came back from an 18-point deficit to upset The Money Team, 102-99 and advance to the quarterfinals of The Basketball Tournament in Columbus, Ohio on Thursday.

Luther’s layup capped a 14-2 game-closing run for No. 23 Herd That, which crossed the 101-point Elam Ending threshold on his basket for the highest-scoring game in the first two rounds of the tournament. Luther finished with nine points and six rebounds in 18 minutes. He finished 3 of 7 from the field.

“We’re lucky to have him and made a great read, phenomenal finish to end the game,” point guard Jon Elmore said.

The No. 7-seeded The Money Team led, 40-24 after the first quarter and 62-55 at the half before making the late run to win.

Chris Cokley (UAB) scored 32 points and Jacorey Williams (Arkansas/Middle Tennessee State) had 30 points for Herd That, a team populated with mostly Marshall alumni.

No. 23 Herd That will face No. 2 seed and four-time champions Overseas Elite in the quarterfinals on Saturday at 2 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN.

If they were winning 100-99, how is a two point play a winning bucket? Are the rules that you have to win by 3?
