at about their own foul line for that four point heave.
Oh yeah, unless the defense is as dumb as a box of rocks (see VCU losing in the first round last year), there's no four point shot.
This is one of my pet peeves.
When will college BB players stop conceding in that situation?
The only college team that I've seen attempt to win down two scores with less than five seconds left was Butler under Brad Stevens a few years back.
TO HAVE A CHANCE, YOU HAVE TO SCORE BEFORE THE CLOCK RUNS OUT. So why don't teams in this situation recognize the obvious--that the clock is stopped while the inbounds pass is in the air--and throw a length-of-the-court pass to attempt to score in next to no time? Butler did it, and scored with about two seconds left, giving themselves a chance to intercept the ensuing inbounds and win. (They didn't, but at least they had two seconds of a one score game.)
But, but, but, the pass will likely be intercepted!!! Yes, and if that happens, you lose, just like you are sure to do if you inbound the ball in the backcourt and the defense freezes like it should.
Hockey has it figured out. You pull the goalie.
