Most likely correct but pretty ticky tack call that decided that SDSU/Creighton game.

Another exciting game, though.

The game was decided when Creighton used their take foul with 6.7 seconds remaining, with only 3 or so seconds left on the shot clock. A classic example of over coaching. One of the worst decisions I have ever seen.

Well technically the take foul didn't matter.  Creighton fouled in the act of shooting and it would have been two fts for him even if they hadn't fouled right before that.  But I am always on the fence with the take fouls anyways.  Either way, if you are creighton, you can't foul on that last shot with so little time left.  You can't put the other team on the line to win the game.

I disagree. If Creighton plays defense for just 3 more seconds, then they would have had the final shot with 3 seconds remaining. With the take foul, they gave San Diego State the benefit of taking the last shot.

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

Very little drama, thanks to SDSU playing like garbage most of the game. It was obvious they weren’t used to being on the biggest stage — lots of turnovers, missed layups and FTs, and quite a few dumb fouls to put UConn in the bonus and double-bonus early.

Nope. That honor goes to Uconn vs Butler in 2011, total snooze fest

Agreed. That's the worst one I can remember.  Although Maryland-Indiana is also in the discussion for me.
