In a crazy day of college basketball, one of the craziest games happened right here in Spokane.

North Dakota State, whose fans we told you about earlier today, just beat Oklahoma 80-75 in overtime. And it was crazy.

By the time Lawrence Alexander hit a three pointer with 10 seconds left to tie the game, everyone in the Spokane Arena not wearing Oklahoma gear was on their feat cheering for the Bison. It was easy to do, considering how many people made the trek westward on I-90 from Fargo. There was more than an entire section of the arena decked out in yellow. Apparently, the yellow blazer is an easy-to-come-by piece of clothing in North Dakota, as evidenced tonight.

It's going to be nice to have these rowdy, yellow-loving folks back here on Saturday. They might even earn some bandwagon fans in the meantime.

So far, two different 12 seeds have emerged out of Spokane, after Harvard knocked off Cincinnati earlier today.

And nationwide, this was the third overtime contest. Not a bad day of hoops. Hopefully you didn't waste your day doing something stupid, like working and got to see some of this.

Next up, New Mexico State takes on San Diego State.
