Highlights of the basketball team's victory over Ole Miss from this past Tuesday night. Today they came back in the second half to beat West Virginia 79-76 in front of a surprisingly rowdy BUC. As the old joke goes, when you have a head football coaching search fever, the only prescription is more Reggie Johnson. (I'm sorry.)
Leonard Hankerson's 79-yard Michael Irvin-tying touchdown. With 11, Hank is now tied with The Playmaker for most single-season scoring receptions in UM history. And yes, his mother was there.
The amazing human being behind the canesfreak2001 YouTube page has been steadily uploading extensive highlight videos from games during the 2001 season. The Washington game is above, obviously, and there are videos of the West Virginia, Syracuse, BC and Virginia Tech games on the page. A lesson learned from these videos: The 2001 team broke the school record for points in a season, but even they slumped. In the final two games of that season, the offense scored two touchdowns and kicked seven field goals.
