Four Southeastern Conference basketball games went past regulation, the first time it happened in the league in 34 years.
The longest game was between Tennessee and Texas A&M, which ended after four overtimes with the Volunteers claiming a 93-85 victory over the Aggies. The Vols had never before played a four-OT game.
The Aggies and Vols came up one extra period short of the longest game men's game this season. Notre Dame beat Louisville 104-101 in five overtimes on Feb. 9.
LSU needed three overtimes to dispatch Alabama 97-94, while Georgia beat South Carolina 62-53, and Kentucky edged Missouri 90-83 in one OT.
The last time four SEC games went OT was Feb. 10, 1979, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
