Vanderbilt's foul fail puts the Madness in March

It's still early, but Vanderbilt may have already made the worst play of this year's NCAA tournament.

In the dying seconds of their first-round game against Northwestern, Vanderbilt guard Matthew Fisher-Davis made a crucial mistake. For some reason, Fisher-Davis intentionally fouled a Northwestern player while Vanderbilt was up by one. 

The bizarre foul handed the ball back to Northwestern's Bryant McIntosh, who knocked down both free throws to take the lead.

A last ditch long-ball from Vanderbilt's Riley LaChance with one second remaining wouldn't go, and Northwestern walked away with their first-ever March Madness win.

Fisher-Davis, on the other hand, went from hero to zero real quick.

He led his team in points with 22, keeping Vanderbilt in a game that was dominated by Northwestern, but it's his final misstep that will be remembered.

While Vanderbilt fans were obviously the most heartbroken, amateur brackotologists everywhere were not pleased when the favoured Commodores failed to produce.

Though the critical mistake gave Vanderbilt an early exit, the March Madness tournament has seen worse.

Michigan's Chris Webber famously called a timeout for his team when they didn't have any left, drawing a technical foul with 11 seconds left of the championship game. 

Michigan would go on to lose the game 77-71 to North Carolina.
