Louisville's Going To The National Championship After A Double-Digit Comeback And A Controversial Call

Louisville made a furious rally thanks to some hyperaggressive defense, a flurry of threes, and one very questionable tie-up.

But WSU's lead, which grew as large as 12 points, started to evaporate in the second half when walk-on Tim Henderson — who only scored 16 points all season — hit this three-pointer.

Off of that turnover, bench player Luke Hancock, who had 20 in the game, came all the way across the court to hit this huge three, giving Louisville its first lead since early in the first half.


But as soon as Ron Baker grabbed the rebound, Hancock tied him up, and the possession arrow pointed to Louisville. Russ Smith got the inbounds and, once fouled, hit one of his two free throw, sealing the deal.

Either way, winning the game on the possession arrow, which is essentially an arbitrary device, feels wrong. (In the NBA, the two players would have had to jump for it to determine possession.)
