Some official help
February 12, 2008 - Neil Rudel
I watched two highly-entertaining college basketball games Monday night, and both ended with the visiting team losing in controversial fashion.
The first was Villanova's 55-53 loss to Georgetown in which 'Nova lost on one of the worst calls of all time -- a touch foul with .01 seconds left and a Hoya player 80 feet from the hoop and absolutely no threat to score.
Then I flipped over to the Rutgers-Tennessee women's game, at UT. Rutgers squandered a late lead, as Tennessee hit some huge 3-pointers, then the clock managed to stick on .02, allowing the Lady Vols to complete their comeback.
