Word to the officials, if it's close, go with the legacy team.
The real reason Texas Tech lost:

He's done it before:

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney sent an inspiring message to his fellow ACC head coach prior to tipoff. “Let the light that shines in you be brighter than the light that shines on you.”

      Sounds like minor (but maybe valid) complaints that went unaddressed until somebody got thoroughly pissed. Never works to keep hoping complaints will just go away.
      Pretty good guess, but regardless:

      UNC’s Hatchell resigns after findings from program review

      Old lady, history of health issues, cheaper to toss her under the bus than to defend her questionable behaviour (which obviously has been an ever-present hallmark of her tenure for the last 33 years :roll: )

      1986 Vrede too might not fare so well in 2019, either.

      I'm not saying circumstances and behaviour expectations shouldn't be improved or changed over time, but really - did you ever have or know of a coach in a physical sport who didn't encourage the doc to "give us a little help here - we've got a big event coming up..." or who didn't get a bit crude in language from time to time. I guess it's possible that Hatchell has some sort of dementia and has had personality/behaviour changes, but otherwise, she's got 33 years of record with literally hundreds of athletes on her teams where she didn't seem to cause any permanent harm.

      Idk, one wouldn't think that either coaches or athletes change that much. Maybe:

      She did get crustier;
      After 33 years she reached that 'I don't give a fuck' stage of human development;
      The culture changed;
      The UNC admin changed, allowing gripes to progress further;
      Just an unfortunate mix of coach and players (and parents?) this year;
      Any or none of these PLUS no ACC Tournament or Regular Season Championship for over a decade, no Final Four for over a decade and no NCAA Tournament Championship for over 2 decades.
