The Virginia Tech/Duke basketball game was simply AMAZING. Check this sequence of events out:

  1. ~11 seconds left, Shelden Williams is on the line for a 1/1 with the Hokies down 74-73. He bricks it, VT rebounds and brings it up court. The VT player throws up an UGLY shot, but somehow Collins (VT) manages to tip it in with 4 other Dukies surrounding him.
  2. This means 75-74 VT with 1 second left on the clock. After some deliberation, the ref puts up 0.6 seconds on the clock, so the time is 1.6 seconds on the clock. My sister and I are screaming out lungs out with joy, only because I love shutting up the Cameron Crazies (she hates Duke with a passion).
  3. Whoever is inbounding rifles the ball to midcourt... Dockery catches it halfcourt, takes one dribble, turns around, and shoots it. The arc looks good to me before the ball reaches the zenith...
  4. SWISH, Dockery lands a prayer and Duke wins ... 77-75.

McRoberts inbounded it in. Dockery porks little boys for fun, and Coach K watches. You heard it hear first.

I was glad to see Duke win, but I'm not so sure about the arc. I think time had run out already, but nobody contested it.
