This feels just like the FB loss at Kansas last season. It seemed the stars were aligning for us. All of the pieces had fallen into place and the Big 12 North title was within grasp. The only thing that failed was us.
All of the other things we needed to have happen today for a 6th place finish and a shot at the NIT happened.....except us winning.
The sports gods love to break our hearts.
Certainly not as much significance with this game as the FB game, but it did seem like the stars were aligning for us today. I can see the analogy.
Watching on TV, the only call I thought was crap was the "blocking" foul on Clark at about the 3 min mark with Jackson clearly charging IMO.
Agreed; it's an unfortunate fact that a senior with JJacks credentials is going to get that call. Clark was in position for a day and a half!
The other play down the stretch that left me seething was when Mike T. got loose with the ball, got picked and let the freshman (white kid) have an uncontested lay-up. C'mon Mike; you're twice as fast as that guy so either run him off or block the shot! DO NOT stand by and let him lay it in...
