    And Coach K (only down by 7) calls off the pressure and let's us dribble it out.

    Did anyone else take that as a little strange?

    No it's common sense when you are down 7 with 16 seconds and the other team has possession...Also he had 4 players fouled out by that time...Only stupid HBCs like Matthew Mitchell continue to risk injury when all hope is lost

    I have to agree with what I heard on the radio, that it was more a sign of respect to allow us to have our moment, that we certainly earned and he knew it.

    I thought it was uncharacteristic of him, but the way we were making foul shots I think he saw the writing on the wall.

    We certainly deserved it, that's for sure. Takes a big person to admit when you're beat. He also took out the seniors. Just weird to watch a coach call it a game when there's still that much time left.

    He's from the Bobby Knight tree. He might have been sending a message to the returning.
