The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — Those holding a Gonzaga ticket against TCU on Sunday’s Round Two matchup were ready to slit their wrists at the conclusion of the contest.

Per Gil Alexander of VSiN, here was the game ending scenario:

• Zags (-4.5) up 7 with 15.6 left.

• Inbounds pass stolen. Foul. TCU hits both FTs. Zags up 5 with 13.7 left.

• Zags breakaway jam. Up 7 with 8.4 left.

• TCU 3-pointer, down 4 with 3.4 left.

• Zags fouled with 0.7 remaining, make both FTs.

Up 6.

• Perfect roll down court, not touched till 2/3 way down. Scoop. Fire. Splash.

• Zags win by 3.
