The One that Slipped Away
Wow! Surprisingly I wasn't as down as I expected to be. I guess turning 40 provides a bit of maturity. The season is over, but another will begin.
The toughest part of losing the National Championship is to realize Memphis was about five seconds away from winning it all. It was a perfect storm the last two minutes to give away that game - the steal on the inbounds and the 3 by Kansas, the missed free throws by the team best players, the defense that couldn't stop Kansas in the end.
Nevermind the overtime, the Memphis players never seemed to get over the fact that overtime never should have happened.
Well, more later..........................
