Just for your reference.
NBA: longest NBA game ever ended after 6 overtime with the Indianapolis Olympians beating the Rochester Royals 75 - 73.
The NCAA record book (NCAA.org) lists a 7 OT game from 1981 (so pre-shot clock)... Cinncinnati (75) v. Bradley (73). [Division I]
In the shot clock era of the NBA 5OT is the longest http://www.nytimes.com/1989/11/10/sp...s/B/Basketball to see the article about it.
NEEDLESS TO SAY 6OT is INSANE!
