I have a question for Griff. For some reason last evening I was unable to watch the game on ESPN3. Did anyone else have the same problem? With 5 second left, and down by a point, and Rider calling a timeout, could someone explain the final play. I just can't understand why those two big guys were involved. Griff, please don't give up. In a few short weeks it will be over. The Griffs still have 8 games to play, and with the league so down anything can happen. I"m hoping that Johnson can somehow inspire his team mates to play with some passion, and win several of the remaining games. We're not a last place team. Go Griffs!!!

Cager - I didn't have an issue getting the game on ESPN 3. Anyone else?

As for the final play, all I can guess is that with Rider only having committed 3 team fouls in the second half, the Griffs coaches believed they would foul 3 consecutive times, essentially running the clock out. So they inbounded it to Hadzic who then attempted to pass it just past half court to Corey Brown. Again, my guess being that these would be the two guys Rider wouldn't be smothering and looking to foul instantly. They were right about that part but the pass and attempted catch/advancement of the ball failed miserably and Rider got an easy steal to run out the last second.

Bottom line to the whole thing is that you can't foul the guy taking the 3 with 6 seconds left.

Totally agree with you Griff,any one else getting the inbounds would have gotten fouled.The Griffs had a chance to put the game away prior to Rider getting the ball back for the 3 pointer.
