I looked at the Elam Ending in that game as an argument against using it more broadly. We Are D3 cut the deficit from six points to three points. When Boeheim's Army scored the winning basket, the game was even closer.

If the game had been allowed to go the full length, wouldn't that have conceivably allowed at least one more position to tie the game?

I think what you describe, though, is exactly what the proponents of the Elam Ending want -- to give the trailing team a legitimate path to rallying to win the game, rather than the parade of foul shots which is unlikely to do anything but bore the audience.

 Jeff Gibbs, former member of the D3 entry in the TBT, was a starter on this year's winner - Carmine's Crew.

Not bad for a guy who's, what, about 38 years old or so by now?
