My point is just that you can win the game crashing the glass on a late miss. It wasn't as time expired, but similar situation vs. Texas. Bit more time and Irvin drove and missed a wild layup, but Moe followed it up.
In a perfect world, you get a wide open shot for your best shooter as time expires. No one is debating that, the point is more just that shit happens and it was a chaotic late-game situation.
I thought so too, he could have gotten the ball up court a bit faster. But Northwestern also did a good job of stopping ball and had 3 guys basically stopping him and clogging the middle, so it isn't like he had a great lane to attack.
