Aggies complete miraculous comeback

The Aggies trailed Northern Iowa by a dozen points before they closed out regulation with a stunning 14-2 run that sent the game into overtime, then won it 92-88 in double OT Sunday night to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2007. It was the largest last-minute comeback in college basketball history. The previous record was set in 2005, when UNLV rallied from 11 points down with 59 seconds left to beat San Diego State in overtime. At the moment when most teams might empty the bench or commit a series of half-hearted fouls, the Aggies kept trying to make a play. Instead of launching low-percentage jumpers, the Aggies drove into the lane for quick baskets. Instead of fouling, they pressured Northern Iowa into mistake after mistake.
