    You guys hit it...up 4 with all the momentum after the charge call on Wisconsin. We have 3-4 awful possessions in a row with just dumb shots. I don't understand why Booker wasn't in there down the stretch. Aaron and Booker could take their guys any time they wanted to and we didn't go that way though we should have.

    They missed that flagrant foul AFTER watching it on tape. That's unbelievable. Officiating was just terrible.

    I have no idea what Andrew Harrison was thinking. He had 4 horrible possesions, 3 shot clock violations in a row and a 4th where he had to throw the ball up to try and avoid another. I'm still trying to figure that one out.

    A couple of calls were terrible. The shot clock violation was awful as was the last two fouls on Aaron.

    Kentucky has had the most talented basketball team in America five of the last six seasons and has one title. That stings.
    Sorry, Cal didn't do it, Andrew Harrison runs the offense and didn't even look to start the offense going.

    But even with that UK was up by four and failure to execute on the offensive end is eventually what lost the game.

    Play of the game was the 3 pointer (Koenig?) on a UK defensive lapse.

    WCS was a non-factor tonight.

    I really am not that upset by this loss. They played a good game and got beat by a very good team in the final four. Disappointed of course but it was such a great season it is hard to feel anything but proud of the season this team put together.

    Cal didn't make an adjustment or call a play. He runs no plays. That hurts down the stretch. It finally bit the Cats. After one or two possessions why didn't he call a TO or call something out?

    Outscored 17-6 after the Cats went up 58-54.

    I literally felt it falling apart from that point on.

    I'm not a UK fan at all but was never more impressed with a team than this year's team. To win 38 straight in college hoops is an incredible feat. They were a little lucky to get by ND and their luck ran out tonight. I thought the officiating tonight was not the best in general but not really one sided - bad calls both ways. I hope Wisconsin wins Monday as I would like to see Bo get a championship. I am OK with Coach K winning too. Class act.

    Cal almost never calls timeouts in situations like that. He has coached it that way for as long as I can remember going back to Memphis.
