Well, That Sucked

The Longhorns couldn't get it done against Duke, and the frustrating part is that they essentially beat themselves.

You don't win an NCAA tournament game (much less one against Duke) when:

1) You can't shoot free throws to save your life (16 of 25 on the night).
2) You turn the ball over a ton (15 to the Blue Devils' 9).
3) Your best clutch performer isn't clutch (17 PTS on 5 of 13 shooting for A.J. Abrams).

And even with all that, they had a chance to win at the end, but couldn't get a rebound after Duke missed two free throws. That just can't happen.

What's worse is I got every other game right today...except the Texas game. Makes it sting even more.

The only silver lining here is that Duke barely beat Texas, which means they'll get crushed by Villanova next round. Meh.
