We hear the term “lights out” in sports quite often. But how often are the lights actually out?
Just ask Little Rock and Louisiana, which went down to the wire Friday night before an extremely unusual and controversial finish.
Here’s a full clip of the closing seconds of Louisiana’s 66-64 home victory:
Stunningly, the officials kept their whistles silent despite the obvious distraction in the final possession of an importance conference game. Little Rock players and coaches were visibly confused during and after the possession as well.
Meanwhile, the Trojans social media team made sure to include a subtle reference to the lighting incident.
With the strange win, Louisiana improves to 8-2 overall and 2-1 in the Sun Belt.
Let’s hope the lights stay on for 40 minutes on Saturday.
