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.

As bloody awful as he was, Dunleavy actually did a hell of a job this year of getting the Clips under the cap and in prime position to pull in a prize free agent. It's somewhat sad to see that this is how he's being repaid.
