IU loses, as well

Minnesota was ahead the whole game, but DJ White, like a bull in a china shop, with the refs treating him like a poor little guard among the giants under the rim, put IU ahead with 1.5 seconds to go. But Minnesota put the Hoosiers down for good with a majestic pass and a beautiful little hook-like jumper at the buzzer. I played it back in slow motion a few times and it was beautiful -- the ball flying free from his hand, the clock right in frame at .1, one tenth of a second, and then clicking over to zero, the horn sounding, the ball going through and every Minnesota hand rising in victory.

Ah.... that tempers the Purdue loss.
