A minute and 20 seconds into the second half, Memphis has only scored 22 points, but UCLA’s lead is only 6 points because the Bruins are 6 of 19 from the free-throw line. If UCLA doesn’t go to the Final Four, they’ll know why.
UPDATE: Okay, both of these teams are sucking it up, big-time. Can we please put some other team into the Final Four instead? How about Washington? Or perhaps Boston College? Hell, even Texas deserves it more than these clowns, based on how they’re playing right now.
UPDATE 2: Worst. Game. Ever.
UCLA wins, 50-45. It’ll be Bruins vs. Tigers, instead of Tigers vs. Tigers, in the Final Four.
Pool update to follow after I walk the dog.
P.S. Greg Gumbel got it right: “So, UCLA played less poorly than Memphis did.” Heh.
