Video of the Week: Winona State Vs. Barton College
I was thinking of a video for this week and I was having trouble picking one out. I was going to do a volleyball clip that my friend showed me of what they call a “Triple Six Pack” (click here to see it), but it seemed short and I wanted to give you guys something that was a bit more exciting.
Then, randomly, I remembered a game I watched a few years ago: the Division II NCAA Basketball Championship.
This game was between powerhouse Winona St. Warriors, who had won 57 straight games, and the underdog Barton College Bulldogs. (SPOILER ALERT) In shocking fashion, Barton is able to win the game behind the amazing play of Anthony Atkinson, who is currently a Harlem Globetrotter. I think this is my favorite underdog win of all-time and will always have a place in my heart.
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
