"The Shot" Still Resonates in Natchitoches

When a school's sports program doesn't have a lot of positive history to look back on, one moment is the spotlight can make an amazing difference. Such is the case at Northwestern State University in Natchitoches, Louisiana. It was Jermaine Wallace's last-second three-pointer that led the Demons to a shocking 64-63 victory over Iowa in last season's NCAA men's basketball tournament and gave the school their "One Shining Moment."

This moment still shines brightly well into a new season, and this column by Kyle Whelliston on shows what an impact it has made on the school and the men's basketball program.
