I don't care about the call, but I would have preferred hitting the shot

He was fouled in the act of shooting. The ball hadn't left his hand when he was hit. It was clearly a foul, and anyone who says it wasn't is, in my estimation, blind. Or willfully blind. Blind is a disability and there's no shame in that. Can't say the same for the willful version, though.

Anyway, there are few more exciting shots than the buzzer-beater for the win, and that shot would have been in UVA highlight reels for decades. Not so with three foul shots. Nerve-wracking, yes, but not that euphoric excitement that comes with burying that must-have three as time runs out.

So, yeah, I'd rather he'd hit it. But we won, so it's all good.
