Maybe This is Why Lute Olson Retired

Listen, for those of you who don't like basketball, I can understand how this may be a bit annoying. I mean, a fourth basketball post before it's even lunchtime? Outrageous. And to you, I say, fucking deal with it. I love basketball, and ESPN's college basketball marathon has brought me great joy.

Also, I completely missed this because I went to sleep and all.

Read this:

Then, with the score 71-69 after Arizona’s Garland Junkins missed a free throw, Arizona’s Kyle Fogg scrapped up the loose ball and put it in the hoop, tying the game at 71 with :30 seconds remaining. Fogg, not thinking because he was probably told in the timeout before the free throw to foul by the coaches (thinking they’d be down by one or two after the free throw), fouled UAB’s Aaron Johnson....

....So Johnson misses his one-and-one attempt. Jordan Hill grabs the rebound. Arizona calls timeout, sets up a play, and puts it in the hands of Nic Wise. Wise’s shot clanks off the rim with about three seconds to go and UAB’s Paul Delaney (the THIRD) gets the rebound. That’s when Jamelle Horne completely forgets how to play the game of basketball, ignores the fact that the game is tied at 71 and lunges for Delaney III, causing the refs to call an intention foul on Horne, giving UAB two shots and the ball.

And watch.

Wow. Just wow.
