The game that still amazes anyone who sees it got some new legs recently.
Barton College's thrilling 77-75 victory against Winona State in the 2007 NCAA Division II men's basketball championship game was voted second most dramatic finish in NCAA championship history by the NCAA's Champion Magazine.
The Bulldogs' comeback from seven points down with 45 seconds to go ranks ahead of such famous finishes as the buzzer-beater dunk by N.C. State's Lorenzo Charles to beat Houston in the 1983 Div. I men's basketball championship or Warren Morris' walk-off two-run home run to win the 1996 College World Series for Louisiana State.
That's pretty impressive but if you think Barton's feat should have been No. 1, consider the winning moment.
Simpson College wrestler Nick Ackerman won the 2001 Div. III champion in the 174-pound weight class. Not a mindblowing accomplishment unless you understand that Ackerman had both legs amputated below his knees when he was 18-months-old due to bacterial meningitis.
I don't know about you, but I think the Bulldogs are in pretty good company.
