He was trying to call a timeout after the score. The refs didn't see it before they inbounded. Worst case up by 2 with .9 left.

Said so on the post game.

Wow.

Few said in the press conference that they debated and decided to have Meech in there for defense.

Abe, but WKU coach called TO. If that TO was granted, Goodsen's shot would never happen! That's what I have a problem with, not with the two teams, but with the ref.

If I'm not mistaken, he called TO after Meech made his shot. He was interviewed after the game saying that he wanted to set up a final play but not only were the officials not looking at him, but his players inbounded the ball too quickly. I'm sorry but even if WKU had been granted a time out, the likelihood of a full court game tying/winning play with less than a second on the clock is slim to none, and slim's out to lunch. Your grasping here brian and it's very unbecoming.

GO ZAGS!!!

The kids who fought for that game deserved better referring all around, it seemed that under the basket you could commit felony assault (both ways) but then ticky tack fouls were called outside. Again, I think it all balanced out, it just was the wierdest game I think I have ever seen, and the players who gave it their ALL should be commended for largely keeping their cool, Austin was close to a T.

Can the opposing coach call timeout when the opposite team has possession and is charging the hoop? He didn't try to call timeout before we were charging, I watched the replay several times.

Western Kentucy = No Mid Magor. What a great game! I cannot believe how well Gonzaga played tonight. If we had a bad game, we lose. It is that simple.

83 you are a helluva guy. Your team seriously almost gave me a hard attack, and I'm only 26. Mendez Valdez was unconscious. We were all shouting at the TV whenever he got the ball, we were seriously scared of him.

Losing like that is a heartbreaker, Topper. Zag fans are only too familiar with that. Doesn't help much to know it was an awesome game, but that was tremendously entertaining game.

83, Zag fans have been on both sides of game-winning shots, upsets and near upsets. I understand how this one must sting for you, but your team deserves high praise, they came up just a hair short in one of the craziest, most competitive NCAA games in a while.

Topper, I would rep you but I have to 'spread some rep around'. What a freaking game! As someone else mentioned, Gu has known the heartbreak you guys are undoubtedly suffering tonight. You played your guts out, left it all on the floor tonight. I don't ever want to play you guys again! Go get 'em next year, take all the big boys down!!!!!!!!

What a game. I hope that was for you guys what Arizona was for GU a few years ago - a tough, well-fought heart-breaker that propels the program forward ever farther into the national spotlight. WKU deserves it. Man, OMV played the game of his life. I still can't believe some of the shots he was hitting.

You are your team are all class 83. That was anybody's game and we had the last shot. You guys will be back next year and I look forward to following the Toppers. Take care and thanks for the well wishes.

Thanks Zags for getting WKU back for us. They destroyed me last year. :(

But seriously, what a great game between two of the classiest clubs that I know. Even though WKU wasn't able to pull it off, they can still be so proud of their club. What an awesome effort. And Zags what more can you ask for? The Zags have now gotten where they should have been and where they were expected to be. Every game left that they play is gravy. They have done an excellent job this season.

Congratulations both! Though I wish we had been involved, I still had so much fun rooting for both of you.

What a great game despite the officiating. Has GU ever fouled the three point shooter so much?

Someone tell GU that they need to schedule a home and home with WKU.

And 83, see you in the Foo!

Here's a rumor from the WKU board, take it for what it's worth, a rumor but it sure would make a nice rivalry:

Actually, rumor is Zags and Toppers are discussing a 4-game series. Few, Selig, McDonald (and maybe Zag AD, don't know what he/she looks like) were all together at the hotel the other night -- maybe discussing this very thing.
