Congratulations Anthony Fisher And The TTU Golden Eagles!!

Tennessee Tech Guard, Anthony Fisher scored 31 points in TTU's 73-72 victory over the Austin Peay Governors, and as of 9 PM CST, it is the most points scored by a single NCAA player tonight.

Congrats to Anthony Fisher and the rest of the Golden Eagles in taking out the "Number One" team in the OVC. I of course was at the game, and had an awesome time! I may have even gotten to be on national television after the game! (see the Highlights here)

TTU overcame a double digit deficit to take the lead in the first half, then at least a 9 point deficit in the second half to take the win in the last 35 seconds of the game.

Via AP:
Tech led at halftime 47-43 after trailing by as much as 12. The Golden Eagles have now won 12 of their last 14 games and are 12-1 at home.

Supposedly, if we win our last game of the season, we get a bid in the NIT.

To see the momentum swings of the game, check this out.

I've been trying to find this recap from ESPN.com about the Bracketbuster game of TTU vs the Northwestern State Demons. Tennessee Tech won the game in overtime 85-84 on apparently one of the infamous Tech dunks that echo across the country.
But the most thrilling radio-only BracketBusters game occurred between two teams that still may end up in the NCAA's Big Bracket a month from now. Homestanding Tennessee Tech, tied for second in the OVC, defeated first-place East Division Southlanders Northwestern State 84-85 in a seesaw overtime battle. In addition to seven double-figure scorers (including Tech's Belton Rivers with 35), there were 17 ties and 20 lead changes. The final scoreboard switch came on an Amadi McKenzie slam with five seconds to go in the extra session, a dazzling dunk that sent the Cookeville crowd into 'Buster bedlam. Sorry you weren't able to see it.

Last seasone, one dunk made ESPN's top 10 plays. On an inbound pass for TTU from below the net, Milon Clark caught the ball in mid air and slammed it home. But I assure you, there are many more that go unseen. Last night there were 3 monster dunks in the game, all by Amadi McKenzie
