UVA@UNC stat lines were very similar, apart from 2 important ones: injuries and FG%. Manley/Black already known injuries and Little/Johnson going down in-game. And if you have 20 more shots, but somehow make fewer than the opponent, you're probably going to lose (24-45 vs 23-65). Two big baskets taken away on split second shot clock issues. One at the end of the half where we didn't manage to pick up the turnover quick enough before a violation on UVA, and another where White wasn't paying attention before heaving up a 30 footer that went in, but was reviewed and taken back. It wasn't a bad game to watch, but it was reallllly close to being a great game.

What a comeback by Duke (or choke job by L'ville). Duke played a terrible 30 minutes and then a glorious 10 minutes. K pulled that one out of his butt (going zone, pressure, seldom used Jordan Goldwire).

Also Kentucky got robbed. Interesting what you can and cannot review. Kentucky gets robbed out of going to OT by no replay and then Duke is given 2 free throws to go ahead for good on replay.

Wow great comeback by Duke. That was a struggle to watch the first 30-ish minutes...kept waiting and waiting for Duke to make their run. They looked awesome (& Louisville looked completely rattled) those last 8 minutes

I imagine the UK play will get added to being reviewable next year. The Duke call was the right call, but I can only imagine how frustrated I would be as a Kentucky fan last night.

More of a choke than a great comeback. All the Cards had to do was limit the turnovers and milk the shot clock.



But no they got rattled and fu**ed it up.
Two games in a row against ranked opponents they blew it late by turning the ball over. I cannot believe this sh**.
Okay over.

A little bit of both IMO. Horrible, either way. The last time I remember a comeback like that was Louisville against WVU in the Elite 8 in 2005, forcing overtime and eventually winning after being down 20 or so in the last 5 or 6 minutes. It's nice to be on the right side of things, unlike last night.

Only caught the last 5 minutes, but Duuuuuuuuke!!

Michigan with a bad loss last night. Reminds me of their football team. Highly ranked and very talented but just not a top tier power house. Easy Sweet 16 run and then going to need good matchups and possibly some friendly bounces to make the Final 4. Then again, basically what happened last year.

Michigan's defense is really good, but their offense...needs some work. I could see them winning some games & making a tourney run, but could also see them losing early if shots aren't falling.
