It was broadcast on the ACC Network Extra. The game pitted David vs Goliath of Indiana college basketball. Notre Dame the highest ranked team in the state at that time came in #9 in the country. Ball State was coming into the final road game over the last 3 weeks where they traveled over 8000 miles. It was a game where Ball State came out early and got a double digit lead, and saw Notre Dame battle back. It was single possession game over the last 1:45 of the game. ND would tie the game late with a 3 pointer, and then Ball State Junior Guard Tayler Persons knocked in a 3 to give the Cardinals a lead with 1.7 seconds left upsetting top 10 ranked, and fellow Indiana university Notre Dame 80-77. It was a 20 person crew 16 of which were Notre Dame student workers. We used 6 manned camera operators and 2 marshall cameras behind the back board. This was one of the most special moments in Fighting Irish Media history, and although ND was on the wrong end of the loss. It was something the entire crew throughly enjoyed being a part of. It was something that they still talk about to this day.
