In the annals of college basketball history, certain moments transcend the game itself. Jack Gohlke, a name that echoes through the hardwood, etched his legacy in bold letters during the 2024 NCAA Tournament. His performance against the mighty Kentucky Wildcats will forever be etched in the hearts of fans. Let’s relive the magic of the streak terminator.

Picture this: a No. 14 seed facing off against a No. 3 seed. The odds stacked against them, the Oakland Grizzlies stepped onto the court with determination. Their secret weapon? Jack Gohlke—a sixth-year senior who had journeyed from Division II to Division I, carrying dreams of glory.

The game unfolded like a Hollywood script. Gohlke, a 6-foot-3 guard, caught fire from beyond the arc. His three-pointers rained down like meteors, each swishing a dagger to Kentucky’s hopes. By halftime, he had drilled seven treys, propelling the Grizzlies to a 38-35 lead. But Gohlke wasn’t done.

Jack Gohlke, The Record-Breaker

As the second half unfolded, Gohlke continued his assault. His shots turned a one-possession game into a two-possession lead. And then it happened—the moment that would echo through time. Gohlke sank his tenth three-pointer, etching his name alongside legends. He became the fifth player in NCAA Tournament history to achieve this feat.

His final tally? A career-high 32 points. But it wasn’t just the numbers; it was the audacity, the fearlessness. Gohlke had taken twenty shots—all from beyond the arc. His coach quipped, “He better hit seven more if we’re going to win.” Gohlke fell short of that, but he secured Oakland’s first-ever NCAA Tournament victory.
