Sincere congratulations are in order for the Villanova Wildcats and La Salle Explorers, who, on back-to-back nights, took down the No. 5 and No. 9 teams in the nation in Louisville and Butler.
VIDEO: Drexel's Frantz Massenat Hits the Shot of the College Basketball Season, Wins Game

For Villanova, it was a key conference win in a season that's turning out far better than expected — even if the 'Cats' assist-to-turnover ratio should ultimately prove unsustainable.
And for La Salle, which has made a habit in recent years of playing well out of conference and falling back to Earth in A-10 play, it's the first time the Explorers have beaten a Top-10 team since 1980.
Both wins included a court-storming, but neither included a buzzer-beating 50-footer. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we're here.
Behold what's very possibly the shot of the college basketball season.
Drexel looked like it was headed for overtime on Wednesday night when Hofstra's Taran Buie -- who finished with a game-high 29 points -- buried a three to knot the game at 52 with 5.9 seconds to play.
But then Bruiser Flint got out the whiteboard and drew up the classic inbound-to-Frantz-and-let-him-hit-a-step-through-half-court-heave play. It's not quite the picket fence, but Hofstra still got caught watching the paint dry.
After you're done blinking, fix your eyes on Bruiser in the bottom left of the second angle.Your browser does not support iframes.
