Just How "MAD" is Mad??
From the category of just how 'Mad' will March Madness be on the Road To Atlanta?
What the What? In certainly one of the most bizarre endings to a basketball game in recent memory; bubble-dweller Charlotte survived their opening round game of the Atlantic 10 Tourney against Richmond @ The Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. The 49er's Pierria Henry shot 8 free throws in the last 4.7 seconds thanks to a total of three technical fouls. The Spiders were fouling to prevent Charlotte from attempting the game-tying three pointers with a 63-60 lead. Richmond lost the game 68-63. Check out the last few confusing seconds here from NBC/SN: http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/21134540/vp/51184317#51184317.
Let me know what you think...were the refs out of line...or was this simply horrible coaching at the end of the game by Richmond Head Coach Chris Mooney?
