UVA has been first before, but as last year’s historic No. 1 seed falling to a No. 16. And now the Cavaliers will play in Monday’s final, thanks to Kyle Guy hitting all three last-second free throws for a 63-62 win last night over Auburn. They’ll face No. 3 seed Texas Tech, which knocked out No. 2 seed Michigan State, 61-62.
Is there more to this story? Auburn fans may justly feel robbed, as Ty Jerome’s double-dribble went uncalled with 1.5 seconds left, meaning the Tigers would have regained possession with a two-point lead.
