NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Even Tennessee coach Pat Summitt hated the way this one ended.Tasha Butts hit two free throws after a questionable call with 0.2 seconds left to give top-seeded Tennessee a 71-69 victory over Baylor in the Midwest Regional semifinals Sunday night.
There should not have been a foul called at the end of this game, and I can't believe the whistle was blown. This should have been a no-call situation. There was not a foul. Both players were going for the ball, and this is a game that should have gone into overtime. This is unfortunate for all the players. In a situation like this, you have to let them dictate the outcome of the game.
