  • BLOG: Comment after Morehead-Louisville game common, but troubling

    We have heard it time and time again after a close game that comes down to a final shot with a close play. Such was the case Thursday when Morehead State upset Louisville in the NCAA Tournament.

    You have seen the replays time and again by now. Morehead's Demonte Harper put an incredible fake on Louisville's Peyton Siva, then nailed a 3-pointer with 4.2 seconds to play.

    That is plenty of time for Louisville to get off a shot. Morehead's pressure forced Louisville to settle for a contested 3-pointer from Mike Marra.
