USA TODAY Sports

Which is more impressive: A defenseman scoring a game-winner or 34 points in your first postseason appearance? You decide!

Round of 32

Region 2: On the Court and Ice

No. 3 "Darcy Charrois' OT Winner Preserves The Streak" vs. No. 6 "Jahii Drops 34 points against Stanford"

The Case for "32 Straight": Darcy Charrois' OT game winner was the most exciting finish of any of the 32 wins.

Over the past four seasons, the Sun Devil Hockey program has literally invented new ways to break the hearts of the Arizona wildcats. On February 22, Coach Greg Powers must have lost half of his hair with the way his boys pulled off a heart-stopping victory.

After the Sun Devils pulled off a thrilling third period comeback, Arizona State and Arizona entered an overtime period. The teams went back and forth before Darcy Charrois found a loose puck near the blue line and launched his famous slap shot in the direction of the net.

Charrois' slap shot combined power and finesse and found the back of the net in stunning fashion. Almost miraculously, the Sun Devils pulled off another incredibly heart-stopping win against the Wildcats and continued the torture for the folks in Tucson. -Kerry Crowley

No. 6 "Jahii Drops 34": If you still believe that Jahii Carson isn't destined for the big stage after watching this performance then I don't know what to tell you. In his first career postseason game, Carson decided to wow Las Vegas with a career-high 34 points on 63.6% shooting from the field to will his team to victory. For my money, the most incredible aspect of it all was the timing of the performance.

Not only did he realize this contest was to keep the Devils' NCAA tournament chances alive but Carson also sensed that he had to bring his game to the next level to end ASU's four-game skid. Carson hit countless clutch shots from beginning to end included a three-pointer in overtime that gave the Devils the lead for good.

The performance ended up being the fifth most points ever scored in Pac-12 tournament history and the most ever scored by a freshman. Stanford surely won't forget it and we shouldn't either. -Cody Ulm
