More Madness: Stephen F. Austin Shocks VCU And Shaka Smart 77-75

No lead is a safe lead in the NCAA Tournament. Just ask VCU head coach Shaka Smart, whose team led Stephen F. Austin by 10 points with 3:30 left tonight. The Lumberjacks came back and hit a ridiculous three-point shot while being fouled to convert the rare four-point play with just 3.6 left to go. After the Rams missed at the buzzer, the game went into overtime and SFA won the game by a final score of 77-75 to extend their winning streak to 29 games.

Something I still do not understand is why teams contest long three-point shots with a four-point lead and just seconds remaining? Maybe they get caught in the moment, panic, or just make a stupid decision. Maybe the coaches are ones to blame, since they do not instruct their players to stay off of their man so they can instead let them launch a worthless shot. It’s ironic that tonight’s incredible regulation ending happened to a very respected coach at VCU, who was anything but “Smart” in the final moments.
