Similar. I was about 3/4 way up the lower bowl behind our bench.


I thought the game was over for about 20 to 30 seconds before the wave of grumbling/excitement filtered its way up the stands. I remember seeing the Auburn fans cheering hard and feeling like crap. I interpreted Guy putting his face in his shirt as a "well crap" reaction which just reinforced my thinking it was over. I was so nerve racked at that point, I couldn't even watch the free throws. Everyone was standing except for myself, and a gentleman sitting 2 seats to my left who was similarly overcome. I knew the first 2 had gone in by fan reaction, at which point I forced myself to stand up to watch his 3rd shot and the last desperation heave by Auburn. I had planned to watch the next game, but my group decided to go out celebrating instead.

Of course I had to relive this experience 2 days later when we were down 3 in the final seconds before Dre's 3 to tie and Key's block. That was such a roller coaster of a weekend. I'm surprised I didn't have a heart attack.
