Mo Creek for the win.
The former Hoosier called game on Sunday evening’s semifinal round of The Basketball Tournament, sinking the game-winning 3-pointer to send No. 22 Sideline Cancer to a 67-65 victory over No. 2 Overseas Elite. The win puts Sideline Cancer in Tuesday’s $1 million, winner-take-all championship game against No. 4 Golden Eagles, a team of former Marquette players (including one-time Hoosier Luke Fischer).
Creek’s shot triggered the Elam Ending for Sideline Cancer, and stood as his third 3-pointer of the night. He finished with 10 points and seven rebounds, sealing the win one day after pouring in a team-high 22 points and busting the zone of Boeheim’s Army in the quarterfinals round.

Remy Abell, Creek’s former IU teammate and current running mate with Sideline Cancer, added 14 points and five boards in the win.
Golden Eagles fell in last year’s title game, and lost in the 2018 semifinals.
