Your bi-weekly "basketball is ridiculous" update. 5 straight and 6 of 7 overall.
That's 5 straight and 6 of our last 7 games in which the ball was in the air when the horn sounded at the end of regulation and we did not have a winner. (Edit: That is, it mattered whether or not the ball went in.) And now it's 13 out of about 22 games against reasonable competition in which one team had the ball with a chance to tie or take the lead in the final 30 seconds. (We're 6-7 in those games.)
This was pretty entertaining to watch from start to finish, I have to admit. It means a little more to take the other team down to the wire when you know that losing focus for a couple of minutes at any point in the game could get you blown out. But, still...this is getting kind of stupid, no? I suspect we'll have one more like this to close the season against NCSt next Sunday also.
