I wrapped our list of the "10 best NCAA March Madness games from last decade" today.
Predictably, No. 1 was the 2008 title game between Kansas and Memphis.
While doing research to refresh my memory, I ran across a video that was shown on CBS before that game, and it is wild to go back and watch it now. In fact, click this link and watch it now. The best part comes around the 1:20 mark, when Chris Douglas-Roberts and Derrick Rose basically mock critics who think they might be undone by poor free throw shooting.
Douglas-Roberts: "We never lost a game from a free throw."
Rose: "I know. So what's all the talk?"
Douglas-Roberts: "I don't know."
After that, the five starters sit around and laugh about free throws, then Antonio Anderson says, "When they need to get made, [we'll] make them." As you know, it didn't go down like that. Douglas-Roberts missed three free throws in the final 75 seconds; Rose missed one with 10.8 seconds left that, if made, would've created a four-point margin and essentially clinched the national title.
Anyway, just thought it was interesting to look at two years later.
Do so, then carry on with your bubble-watching day.
