Admon Gilder scored the last-second game-tying layup to help Texas A&M complete its incredible comeback last Sunday night against Northern Iowa. Unfortunately, his parents had left with around one minute to go in the game. To be fair, they had a long drive ahead of them that night to get back home and Northern Iowa had a 99.9-100% chance of winning the game with 40 second to go. But then, one of the most historic comebacks in NCAA history happened. They found out about it while stopped at a gas station on their drive but were too far gone to turn around.
Woah. Improbable finish. Trocha-Morelos and Admon Gilder force turnover out of trap and Gilder bucket ties it with 1.9 left.— Kate Hairopoulos (@khairopoulos) March 21, 2016
Gilder says he doesn't blame them and would have left himself. It was an impossible comeback. But I'm sure Admon's parents will never leave early again.
