My Top 5 College Basketball Games That I’ve Seen Live


As a 15-year-old, I consider myself lucky to have seen some of the games I have seen. Sometimes, you just have to get lucky to see a great game and I certainly have with the proof being this list below.

 

5) Davidson 55, Samford 52, 2009 Regular Season

Why?: The atmosphere was fantastic, and watching Stephen Curry live was great chance to see a fantastic player.

4) Mississippi State 69, Alabama 67 OT, 2008 SEC Tournament

Why?: How can I not put in the game where a tornado hit the Georgia Dome? Definitely the most intense game I’ve been apart of for a number of reasons.

3) Duke 61, Butler 59, 2010 NCAA Tournament

Why?: The underdog story almost won a national title. The game ended with a full court shot that almost went in.

2) Kansas 75, Memphis 68 OT, 2008 NCAA Tournament

Why?: Time seemed to freeze as Mario Chalmers shot his game-tying three-point in the 2008 National Championship Game. I loved this game because of the comeback by Kansas to send it to overtime, and because my grandparents joined me at this game.

1) Kentucky 75, Mississippi State 74 OT, 2010 SEC Tournament

Why?: I was watching this game from under the basket where Demarcus Cousins made the game-tying lay-up. How could it not be number one? The atmosphere was fantastic because of how loud the Kentucky fans made the arena in Nashville. It was also cool to see actress Ashley Judd, whose new show “Missiing” on ABC is fantastic.
