Reaction to Virginia’s wild 63-62 over Auburn to advance to first-ever National Championship Game

Another big game on a national stage came down to a controversial call from the referees.

With the ball out of bounds and trailing 62-60, Virginia had one last shot to either force overtime or take the lead on Auburn, who had just put together a massive 15-3 run to take the late lead.

The inbound pass came into Virginia’s Kyle Guy, who turned around with a 3-pointer from the corner.  The shot missed, but Guy was bailed out on a late whistle from the official nearest to the play, ruling that Auburn’s Bryce Brown ran into Guy on his descent from the jump shot.


Guy calmly stepped to the free-throw line and came through big for the Hoos with all three free-throws.

Do you agree with the foul call?

Virginia will advance to Monday’s National Championship game on Monday at 3:30 on 1029/750 The Game and 1029TheGame.com, facing the winner of Michigan State and Texas Tech.
