The perfect ending for a maddening season out of Elijah Johnson. One of the dumber point guards on a major team in college basketball this season. He'd have games like tonite and then he'd have great games like the Iowa State game in Ames last month. He also missed the front end of the 1-and-1 right before Burke buried the 3 to tie it. All he needed to do was take one more dribble at an angle toward the basket and he at least had a foul, maybe an and-1. I'm a hoopaholic (college only) and a play like this is an epidemic in the game -- guards driving and getting into the lane only to pitch it out to the 3-point line when all they have to do is look at the basket and they have a little 8-footer in the lane. Total uncharacteristic choke job out of KU but some major league ONIONS out of Burke. This kid's the Player of the Year and he showed why in this one.
