mistake after mistake after mistake
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Bad when you can't even get a shot off at the end to give you a chance.
Disappointing.

Cartwright has killed X this half.
He is a senior who wants to make sure they get to the tournament
Yep, that's what Mack was saying in the huddle.
Cooley got his 1 senior to play. His counterpart couldn't get X's 4 to do the same. CM also took their 2nd best 3 point shooter out. The only person more disappointed than X fans is Jay Wright. I'd check the carbon monoxide levels in his hotel room.

What have I said all year. X does not play well with a big lead. They embarrassed themselves tonight and will go nowhere in the tournament. Yes I’m f’ing pissed. How in the heck does a supposed #3 team blow a 17 point lead? Goodbye Big East Tourney title, Goodbye #1 seed, and Goodbye Final Four. Heck goodbye Sweet 16.
Thank you Musketeers for putting a very sour end to what could have been a great season.

Yes.. 180 turnaround from yesterday.
For X to do well in the NCAA, he has to make some contribution.
He did nothing tonight.

This is why I said I preferred to play Creighton.
Cooley is a damn good coach.
But X should have won the game.
You don't let 17 point leads disappear in the 2H.
