The Louisville Cardinals had a chance to secure a win vs. No. 1 Virginia and the game was pretty much over until critical mistakes allowed the Cavaliers to steal a win at the Yum Center.
Louisville led by four points with less than 6 seconds to go in the game but fouled a three point shooter with 0.9 seconds on the clock. Virginia made the first two and intentionally missed the second to try to get an offensive put back. However, a lane violation gave Louisville the ball out of bounds and what should have been a win.
What happened next is the most ridiculous way possible to lose a basketball game. Not understanding that it was a dead ball call, the Louisville player attempted to run the baseline, which is a traveling violation and a turnover, giving the ball back to Virginia. The Cavaliers inbounded the ball and banked in a three at the buzzer. It’s even better to the song from Titanic.
VIRGINIA WINS IT AT THE BUZZER!!!!
