Facing the third-seeded Kentucky, Oakland entered the matchup as the 14th seed—an underdog by all accounts. But Gohlke had other plans. With nerves of steel and a hot hand, he sank an incredible 10 three-pointers during the game, finishing with a jaw-dropping 32 points. His performance propelled the Golden Grizzlies to an 80-76 victory, marking their first-ever win in the NCAA Tournament

Jack Gohlke’s Journey

Jack Gohlke’s journey to this moment was far from conventional. Five years ago, he redshirted his freshman year at Division II Hillsdale College. But hard work and determination paid off. After transferring to Oakland, Gohlke became an integral part of the team, helping them clinch the Horizon League regular season and tournament championships. His sharpshooting from beyond the arc was a game-changer, and he proved that he could compete with the best.

Coach Greg Kampe had unwavering faith in Gohlke. “He had no conscience,” Kampe said. “Just go shoot it, baby—you’re the best.” And Gohlke lived up to that confidence, leaving a lasting mark on the tournament. His 3-point barrage was a testament to his skill and fearlessness on the court.
