So That We’re Clear: This Is Bad Coaching

From ye ole Deadspin:

The Wildcats were scrambling to comeback in the final minute, when Kyle Fogg snagged a loose ball off a missed free throw and tied the score with 25 seconds left. It was a chaotic moment for the freshman, so he can sort of be forgiven for fouling immediately after the inbound pass even though his team didn’t need it. And hey, UAB missed the one-and-one, so Arizona got it back with no shot clock and a chance to win. It’s all good!

But when Arizona missed their shot attempt and UAB got the rebound 70 feet from their basket with one second left, it probably didn’t make sense for Wildcat forward Jamelle Horne to grab the jersey of Blazer Paul Delany … and earn an intentional foul call with 0.8 seconds left on the clock. They lost by one.

Think Kentucky’s situation is bad? Just be thankful you’re not an Arizona fan. (On the other hand, at least Arizona won their first game.)
