Listen, it’s hard to put what just happened into words. But, here’s what I do know. Virginia is playing for a national title because Kyle Guy has gigantic balls. We’ll get into the foul here in a second, but you still have to get up to the free throw line, down 2 and hit 3 to win. Oh, after blowing a lead, after not shooting well for the tournament and with a trip to the national title on the line.
That’s absolutely unreal.
Now, as for the foul call? It’s a foul. But, this entire arena (that’s right we get credentialed up here) had no idea. There was no replay. We had to wait for Twitter to see what the hell was happening. It’s a touch foul call, but it’s a foul. They’ve called that a few times now this tournament.
Now what the refs did miss was a pretty blatant double dribble on Ty Jerome before a foul was given on this possession. How you miss that I have no idea. The crazy thing is the entire game was pretty clean. It was a quick game. Nothing crazy. Then madness.
Shit, it even looked like Virginia was about to put Auburn away. They were up 10 before Auburn went on a 7-0 run in like two minutes.
Now, I wonder how quick Kyle Guy puts his wedding registry back online?
