From the desk of Swordsman Yen Why did the officials have to go to the replay to make sure the last shot didn't count? The shot clearly didn't leave the shooter's hand until almost a full second after the clock read zero and the red light went on. Even Coach K said the shot was way too late. Most refs who were on the ball would've waved off the basket on the spot. The officials need to stop using instant replay as a crutch and do their job.
Nevertheless, that was a great game. With Texas coming from behind to beat OU and Duke losing to UNC, it was a great weekend in college basketball from where I sit. I can't wait for the tournament to get started.

I think Pitt is a little high. They caught people off guard last year, lets see if they can do it again. And, life on the line, the last coach in the world that I would trust in a big game is Opie Barnes at Texas.
