Comeback or Choke-job?

Almost every great come from behind victory has to have a little bit of a choke-job by the other team.

And last night's NCAA title game choke by Memphis against Kansas was no different.

Memphis lost the game because they got careless with the ball, missed free throws, and because Kansas' Mario Chalmers hit a big 3 to send it into overtime.

I really wanted Memphis to win (and not just because it meant I would win my pool). Tough break....

Those missed free throws reminded me of this other time when Memphis couldn't cash in at the line in a championship game (albeit, a conference championship game) and left one player absolutely devastated...

What do you say to these kids to help them get over this???
