Anyone watch the Duke/UCF finish? UCF had at least 4 chances to put Duke away in the last minute

Duke literally fouled for the entire last 3 minutes of the game and got away with it. Most crooked and corrupt sport on the planet = NCAA basketball
Same ole song and dance.

Duke holds off Baylor; earns Final Four trip
By Mike Vaccaro March 28, 2010 | 11:41pm

HOUSTON – Well, the Duke conspiracy theorists will have a field day with this one.

Baylor had whipped Reliant Stadium into a frenzy, built themselves a two-point lead late in this South Regional final, and Quincy Acy made a lay-up – plus the foul – that threatened to all but drive the Bears to Indianapolis.

Only, there was a problem.

That whistle?

It wasn’t a foul on Brian Zoubek, who looked like he arrived at the spot late, and would have been disqualified. The call was a charge on Acy. Remember the time: 4:37 left. Over the next 3 ½ minutes Duke outscored Baylor 15-3. From nearly down five to up 10, all the way to a 78-71 win that secured Duke’s first trip to the Final Four in six years.

Acy was still in the game after this, Baylor collapsed anyway, and a block-charge call is what decided that three-possession game? Maybe ask Baylor why they completely fell apart when it mattered.
