Ohio State – Kansas

Kansas comes back  from oblivion  to make this one a barnburner at the end.

With 2:48 left in the game, Kansas takes the lead, 56-55. Thomas sinks two free throws and then Craft steals and makes a layup; 59-56 OSU.

This game should have been over. Ohio State was dominating early on, but the Jayhawks really cranked up their defense. Now it’s a 1-point game again. Craft does something ridiculous and Kansas is on the break. Releford now at the line. He drains two and Kansas is up by one. Kansas gets away with a heavy foul and races back down for an easy layin. Kansas now up by three.

Interesting here, they don’t call anything at the end of these NCAA games. We’ve known that forever, so why not hack like crazy?

Three point game, 40 seconds left.

Unreal. They called a travel on Kansas, OSU ball. After two crazy three tries, OSU gets a dunk by Buford with nine seconds left. Now what? Immediate foul, because OSU has no timeouts left.

It sounds to me like Jim Nantz is pulling for Kansas.

Let’s see what happens.

8.3 seconds left, two free throws coming up for Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor.

1st one, drained.

2nd one, good. Kansas by three. Is this crazy? Taylor steals the inbounds pass, then throws it away! Now Kansas fouls Craft and its 1-and-1.

First one, made.

Here’s the game. Craft shoots off the rim; then makes a ridiculous play; lane violation on the shooter! Kansas inbounds, Ohio State doesn’t foul. Game over.

Well, for those of you who like college basketball, this is what you live for. Huge mistakes and terrible shooting.  Gamblers live for this stuff.

I didn’t think there was any way possible for me to pull for the Kentucky Cheaters but maybe there is. I don’t think Kansas has been that great. They just rely on the other team collapsing, and that’s exactly what’s happened. I don’t think Kentucky can tighten up, unless their NBA  players forget how to dunk.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
