Booser is more to blame than Williams. He screwed up big time missing that layup at the end, rebounding the missed free throw.

I personally thought he got clobbered on that layup attempt but I could be wrong. He did make a good play just to get the rebound. I don't think you can blame him at all.

There's no excuse for a great player like Williams to miss free throws when the season is on the line. That was a pretty spectacular game, though.

But he is to blame. Booser is a big guy, and he can jump. He needs to just dunk it home. Instead, every time he gets the ball down low he goes for a lay-in, and it pisses me off every time. I hope he realizes he will get that shit swatted in the pros if he doesn't start dunking instead.

That was a terrific game, and not just because I hate Duke. I was screaming at the TV and Dane Fife when he fouled Williams on the 3 pointer at the end. What was he thinking? It was nice to see the unanimous All-American save his team.... and then choke when they needed the tie. Happy trails, Jason.

I had to work last night, so I wasn't expecting to see or hear the Indiana-Duke game. I was kinda surprised when they interrupted JT "The Brick" to broadcast the hoosiers game.. I was even more surprised that they won. The game sounded like it was a great one over the radio.. I just wish I could have seen it. I hope that my team can pull out an upset against Kansas, but I don't see it happening. If Frank Williams can stay focused, they have a better shot.

So much for the March Madness pool. Oh well, hopefully Williams can learn from his mistake. Kinda like Chris Webber did...

oh...well Webber will learn someday, I'm sure :-)

If I'm not mistaken, from the ACC Tournament on, Boozer was basically setting the world on fire in terms of FG%, so I don't blame him for trying the layup for several reasons: He almost always makes that shot; There were less than 4 seconds left, I don't know if he felt like he had time to try and dunk it in, for fear that the buzzer would sound and he was still holding the ball; There were 3 Hoosiers around him, and the way he got the rebound, it looked to me as though it would have been difficult to set his feet--without travelling or putting the ball on the floor and risk running out of time/having the ball stolen--to do anything but try and shoot a quick put-back. It was a high % shot, I don't blame him for it--plus, I agree with the notion that he was hacked.

Duke played poorly that entire second half, but Indiana just had a masterful one. They played strong defense and just chipped away at that Duke lead. I don't know that anyone can be blamed for losing that game, but if you had to, J-Will would be the only guy--but based on his poor shooting the entire half, not just a last-second free throw. If clutch free throw shooting were the only thing that's important (don't get me wrong, I'd love to have a guy who can make free throws down the stretch), Rumeal Robinson would be a Hall-of-Famer...but he's a footnote. I think J-Will has all the tools to be a star on the next level. However, I'd rather just give Indiana all the credit for winning the game, not fault Duke for losing it.

But he does/did that layup every single time, not just in this scenario.
