Tom Ham column — Yes, I believe!

This game is the textbook example of why you never, ever change channels when a team is within 10 points at the end of a game.

Fortunately for me, and the other idiots who switched channels, CBS Sportsline as posted the game highlights.

Barton, located in Wilson, NC, won 9 overtime games this season in route to the Division II Title. All three games that Barton played in the Division Two Elite Eight were thrillers.

That is one of the most amazing performances I've ever seen.

By the way, nice call to DG yesterday.
