2. For Pitino, it all came down the last 90 seconds of the game.

After a tight second half, the game was tied 76-76 with 1:47 left. The dagger was a 3-pointer from Kevin Huerter with 1:31 remaining. Murphy made a basket and drew a foul but failed to make it a 3-point play with a free throw, which would have tied the game again.

“We were right there,” Pitino said.

Instead, Maryland got their remaining points from the free-throw line. Murphy turned the ball over, then with 36.2 ticks left, Mason decided to foul Jackson.

Pitino said he wanted the team to play defense.

“I don’t know why he fouled,” Pitino said. “So it was obviously a miscommunication.”

Down 4 points, Mason took the ball down the court and missed a jumper. Springs took a shot at a long 3-pointer but missed. A few extra free throws near the end for Maryland gave them the cushion after the score was tied at 76-76.


Go Gophers!!
