For the 16th time in a row, the team that upset Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament lost the following game.
Auburn had the game all but won, until a tragic sequence in the closing seconds. With fouls to give, Auburn used them. Kyle Guy dribbled off his foot while taking the ball up the court. Instead of letting him heave a half-court shot, Auburn fouled.
The foul gave Virginia one more dead-ball opportunity with 1.5 seconds remaining. Kyle Guy missed the corner three, but there was a little contact by Bryce Brown. Was it enough to blow the whistle?
KYLE GUY WAS FOULED.

Kyle Guy knocked down all three free throws to send Virginia to the National Championship.
It was probably a foul, it was definitely bad basketball, but it was not even close to as bad as Bruce Pearl’s dye job.
It's not your imagination. Bruce Pearl's hair has changed color since last weekend. pic.twitter.com/MVRF5ajxLY
