    They were about to, Quinerly moved backwards a bit to avoid getting fouled and made the pass. I guess UCLA could have gone further in the backcourt instead of waiting at half court.

    That’s a shot that’s usually made against us.
    But UCLA’s mistake was sitting back at half court. They wanted to foul, but never were in a position to.

    they were so focused on fouling ... they didn’t defend. Apparently another danger of strategy.

    All those free throw misses are on the coach. More reason to get rid of MW

    I'll fess up here - I need Bama to have a chance in the 'Net bracket. I'm rooting for Bama . . . but not wholeheartedly!

    Can't do it brother. It's bad enough that they are good at football. We don't need them having basketball success on their resume.

    Free throws. Always can be killer. They missed a ton on Alabama's side. Sub 50% when taking 20+ free throws won't cut it. I'd say the same for us, you deserve to lose.

    A really ugly OT for Bama.... a lot of bad shots and ugly possessions. I figured they would win it considering the momentum of the comeback. Nope.

    Well, Nate had a nice year-2 run, but couldn’t quite match that of Coach White. ;)

    I had Bama in my pool and generally root for the league, but any chance our record of holding football and basketball titles at the same time is threatened changes that.
    So fine with the result tonight.
