A disappointing loss to end a great season Bruins 88-78 in OT

Like Double T does a better job at previews, DJC does a better job of post game so read his for in depth analysis.

My takeaways:

- This loss hurts... BAD, but let's look back at this remarkable season. SEC regular season AND tournament champs
- If there is an "upside" I guess it saved me a bunch of money going to Indy for the Final Four (hotel, driving/flying, tickets, time off work, etc.)
- Critique... our guys were not ready for the moment. That is the only way I can explain the poor FT shooting. Hit just 50% and we win in regulation.

It is funny how things come full circle... I started this blog 15 years ago posting about our loss to UCLA and I'm probably done as a contributor after this loss. That doesn't mean the site shuts down as I hope DJC and TT (plus new blood) continue on, but for me my time is up as my passion for the game (not the team) is just not there like it used to be. Call that getting old I guess.

Anyways, let us hope this is a glimpse of the future of Bama hoops and not a blip on the radar.
