As hard as this was on my heart, it’s probably exactly what we needed. Going into the 2 tournaments, we are going to have nail biters like this game. It will give us confidence we are going to win games that come right down to the last few seconds. We won this game with our defense and foul shooting in the last 50 seconds. This is exactly what a team has to be able to do to advance to, or past, the Sweet Sixteen.
We’ve had a few nailbiters in this streak. Kentucky, Misery, had to put Florida away late. It’s not like we’ve been torching everyone like we did the Poultry. But it certainly gives us more confidence that we can get it done at what Sir Alex Ferguson used to call squeaky-bum time.
