That was some ending. Honestly I'd be killing our coaches if they gave that up. Too easy.
At first I was saying..."why are they throwing the ball out of bounds, so Michigan gets it under their own basket"
Then I was saying..."wow, what a play...Laettner-esque."
Feel great for my IHOP buddy, Chris Collins. Way to go, CC.
Bad news. We lose Archie to Michigan. Good news: Beilein available!
Collins said they hadn't practiced it and an assistant drew it up in the huddle!
There have to be a dozen ways it could have been prevented, but when you are objective about it, it's so much easier (and I would argue, correct) to not start listing them and calling for Beilein to be fired.
It came up heads for Northwestern.
50-50 time in Champaign.
Happy for Northwestern, that should pretty much seal the deal and get them in as far as I can tell, no matter what the next 10 days looks like for them.
Iowa won at Wisky
50-50 watch - Illinois-Rutgers in Champaign, on ESPNU, 57-57, Illinois ball, 1:09 left.
PSU's only hope to get the 11 seed requires OSU to make a 7 pt comeback in 1:18
Oops, in East Rutherford
Looks like Rutgers will get the ball back with a shot clock to win it.
Extra time added, so Illinois would have a chance no matter what.
Rutgers wins on a late 3. Likely knocks Illinois off the bubble
OSU extending the game, but IU keeps making FTs.
IU missed 2 FTs, but OSU misses a 3. That should about do it, locking PSU into the 12/13 game.
IU wins. I really don't want to face them Wednesday.
