2018 NCAA Tournament: Loyola-Chicago

ATLANTA — Growing up in Overland Park, Clayton Custer and Ben Richardson did what basketball brothers do in March.

After a NCAA Tournament game, they’d grab a ball, find a court and reenact the action from the previous day. An April morning in 2008 stands out. Hours after Sherron Collins dribbled and handed off to Mario Chalmers for the game-tying 3-pointer against Memphis, Custer and Richardson were in a gym recreating the most clutch shot in Kansas’ hoop history.

“That one was definitely one we did a bunch,” Richardson said. “The hand-off coming off the screen, we took turns hitting that shot.”
