Gets Duke to OT against Carolina after being down 10 with 2:30 left Hey Shaq does this bring back memories? It's been that kind of season, hasn't it Roy?

No doubt Carolina choked, but how the refs didn't call a foul on Duke when Carolina was inbounding the ball at the end was beyond ridiculous

We're seeing fewer "foul fests" in college basketball than say 10 or 15 years ago.

Why?

Speculating about a few reasons: Smarter implementation of the three-point shot, the reduction of the shot clock from 35 to 30 seconds before the 2015-16 season and a longer range view of the season by coaches.

Fantastic miss of the free throw to shoot it so hars it bounced past the three pt line.

This loss for carolina is going to be two for them. Good bet against in their next game

Duke almost got screwed by the clock operator. Go back and watch it. First thing I noticed was the clock started BEFORE a player on the court touched it. The Duke player got the shot off with about 0.2 left but in reality it shoulda been about 0.7. Makes me wonder what the officials would have done had the shot come just after the buzzer? Wonder if they would have had the cajones to say the clock started early but if it didn't the shot would have been released in time and counted the basket even though it came after the buzzer/ Knowinf TV Teddy was on the game probably not but it should have

One other reason: Close losses matter come Selection Sunday.

An 8-point loss to a top-rated team looks a lot better than a 15 or 16-point loss.

Crazy comeback for Duke.

Not once but twice, first in regulation and then in the overtime session.

Shame on UNC.

No wonder the Tar Heels are 10-13 overall and 3-9 in conference play.

Not only did Carolina gag from the free throw line, they also played dumb the last few minutes of regulation, they had a double digit lead, and every time they had the ball they were putting up tough shots early in the shot clock, Cole Anthony did it like three times in a row, he drove the lane and put up floaters with a ton of time on the clock, the Heels blew that game in every way imaginable

Another downside for Cole Anthony: He turns 20 in May. He's old for his class.
