    Last play of regulation

    I'm surprised this hasn't been talked about much. Don't you think we could have got a better shot then a korie pull up? I would have liked to see McGee take the shot. Thoughts?

    Re: Last play of regulation

    IMO Korie should have drove hard and try to pick up a foul and make one FT and win it.

    Re: Last play of regulation

    the last play shouldnt have mattered. should have been niang going to the stripe with around 8 seconds left and would have had no need for korie to take a buzzer beating shot. of course, if niang didnt hit both FTs then im sure elijah johnson would have hit some crazy 3 to tie or win anyways

    Agree completely. Put your head down full speed and dare the officials to call a charge.

    Niang wouldn't shoot ft on a charge.

    Um, yeah. Cycfan1 is correct -- Go. To. The. Bucket. Dare them to foul.

    I hate taking 3's when it's a tie game or 1-point lead, unless there's not enough time left to get anything better (or unless it's clearly a perfect look by a McGee-type shooter).

    I felt like ISU settled for OT, and I didn't feel like the psychological edge was on our side.

    Re: Last play of regulation

    We probably shouldn't nitpick and 20-20 this game to death, but frankly, last night I was too numb to second-guess and once the shock has faded a bit, the focus on that botched officiating sequence gets far too much "anti-credit" for the loss. There were so many moments that could've made that non-existent.

    I still don't know how a team hits 17 3's and goes 29-for-34 at the line at home, leads for almost the entire final 7 minutes, and can't find a way to overcome (or at least not tempt) referee error.

    Somebody would effectively. We're up by two, with the ball with 5 seconds left. We'd inbounds the ball, and if we got it in, Kansas would foul, and somebody would shoot two, or maybe they force try to force the TO, miss and we get it down the court to win the game in regulation. Either way, the charge is a dagger to Kansas, and it was a terrible, terrible, terrible missed call.

    I wouldn't know how either, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. The easy answer is that they had a guy who normally isn't a very good three point shooter, but who in the second half could throw anything up and it would go down--28 feet, with a guy on him, no problem. Combine that with a very good team and a series of one-sided calls, and they were able to overcome those stats.

    Kansas is a strong team, we shouldn't have to beat them by 10, just so when the refs give them 4 points in freebees down the stretch the scoreboard says we beat them by 6. We were face guarding Johnson the whole half, and yet he just couldn't miss. It was just his night I guess. Combine that with the refs screwing us over and even a strong offensive gameplan and execution, with decent defense won't overcome it.

    Re: Last play of regulation

    I didn't have a problem with the shot at the time because it was a pretty good look. I would guess KL wanted to get up a shot that he knew he had a chance with rather than try to drive and risk either not getting a good look or getting a foul called or whatever.
