CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – When Corey Maynard committed a sideline violation trying to inbound the ball with 3.9 seconds left and his team up by two, Tim O’Shea naturally wondered for a moment ifa case of deja vu was not far away.
“I said, no, this can’t be happening,” said the Bryant head coach. “If they had hit a shot there, I think I would have gone down to the mental hospital by the Charles River, just check me in for a few days. After all we had been through, I didn’t think the basketball gods could be that cruel.”
