>> ian: justin sears. misses on the first attempt. another look at the foul. >> len: yes. he broke the plain. victor was traveling parallel. never really stepped into the offensive player's space. it was prince who dipped his shoulder and broke that plain. >> ian: doesn't get roll. baylor down by 4. 35 seconds to play. medford. the drive. medford scores. it's a 2 point game. >> chris: baylor has no timeouts. >> ian: but yale does and mason uses it. 28 seconds left. yale up by 2 on baylor. >> chris: hopefully coach jones is joining us a press break. this press from baylor is giving yale problems. they have one good free throw shooter in makai mason.
catch the ball on the run and not be double teamed. don't pass it into the corners. allow him to get freedom of movement and get other guys involved. >> len: i am recognizing this is a one second difference between the shot clock and the game clock. if i am baylor, take no chances. this is the time to extend the game. i might try for a quick steal. the guy you don't want to foul is mason. you double him and allow somebody else to come the ball and foul them. >> ian: baylor was in this position before. one years ago georgia state pulled off the upset. a number 14 seed. they defeated scott drew and the baylor bears 57-56 in jacksonville. this is all new for james jones and for yale. >> chris: gathers and lindsey keyed in on mason.
they are not fouling him. half a second difference. shot clock to game clock. they get the foul. you might as well as conserve the clock. >> chris: that's a great job by yale. can't stop any one guy from getting the ball inbounds. he catches the ball on the run. time off the dribble and bates for the foul. good job letting the ref's know. >> len: if you are going to extend the game, extend. it you can't waste seconds like that. >> ian: 30 point for makai mason. >> len: and then foul the best free throw shooter on the floor for them. >> ian: 75-72. >> len: still plenty of time. if he makes it 2 possessions, it steepens the slope. >> ian: a 4 point lead for yale. 15 seconds left. a 3. prince.
it's a 1 point game. sherrod. mason. trying to close him in. double team. >> [whistle]. >> ian: a timeout for yale with 9 seconds left. >> chris: the last one. >> ian: clinging to a 1 point lead. >> len: terrible communication right here by yale. either you switch or stay up. >> chris: yes. >> len: allowing prince to get a wide open look. sears has it make sure that he doesn't get him comfortable in that 3 point line. the scouting report. taurean prince 35% from beyond the arc. maybe you go over top of that. instead of going behind the screen. even more importantly, baylor will wish they had those 3 or 4 seconds they wasted chasing makai mason to the front court before fouling.
going to extend it, extend it. do it right away and not wait. >> ian: no more timeouts left. 9 seconds remaining on the clock. a furious rally from baylor put them in a position down by 1 to a win. yale trying to hold on. they led since the 17:59 mark. >> len: it's a spot throw in. this will probably be given to the yale player. right there almost in front of the baylor bench. >> ian: the largest lead for yale you was 13. >> chris: it's totally in front of the yale bench.
bench. requestedine dallier. the triggerman for yale. 9 seconds left. 76-75. yale leading baylor. dallier. goes deep. backing it out. victor. trying to play keeping you current. he is fouled with 6.8. a sneak play. it pays off for the bulldogs. >> chris: everyone trying to deny. sends nick victor deep. >> ian: these teams get a free timeout as the officials huddle up. james jones has brought his team to the sideline. now scott drew will do the same. >> chris: yale not out of the woodson. if victmakes both.
and nick victor 54.5% from the line. >> ian: they are looking at the clock. at 6.8. the deep pass by dallier. they might put .2 aded to it. >> chris: i don't know. that looked pretty good. from a clock starter's perspective. you are only human. >> ian: let's talk strategy. no timeouts remaining. victor will have 2 free throws. strategy if he makes 1 out of 2 or 2 out of 2 or misses both? >> chris: it's the same thing. get it out and push. where do you wind up for the shot? 6.8 seconds is a lot of time.
>> ian: yale up by 1. 54% shooter. he hits. >> [cheers and applause]. >> ian: 77-75. >> chris: the defense identified the best players. it needs to be a man on prince and wainright. those 2 can score outside. expect baylor to push it. with 2 guys in the corner and one guy streaking down the middle. >> ian: victor. an air ball. >> chris: my goodness. >> ian: a 2 point yale lead. 6.8 on the clock. >> len: spread the floor. if you get in prince's hands you do. >> ian: medford turns it over. >> chris: foul. >> ian: with 2.2. the foul is against baylor.
medford trying to work quickly. he was out of control. >> chris: tries to go behind the back. and -- well! makai mason said i did not foul. i wanted to make sure on that play. >> ian: baylor did not even get a shot off. down by 2. 2.2 on the clock. motley fouled out. 59 points and 7 rebounds for the sophomore. now the focus is on brandon sherrod. he can put an end to this game with a pair of makes. >> [crowd noise]. >> ian: 2 point lead for yale. sherrod. first one is good. >> [cheers and applause]. >> ian: 78-75.
