Transcript *♦ ■ m^m %. • u J i P «-.■> ^JH LJ ^Jkljir^ m*KMr* r k u There are 44 seconds left as I sit on the edge of my chair. My friend Mark Roth, seated on my left is all the way back in his chair, as tense as I am. North Carolina State inbounds the ball. I begin screaming at Houston to foul, foul somebody, anybody. The Coogs do a good job keeping State out of shooting range. With the clock running down it looks like it could go into overtime. With three seconds left on the clock, North Carolina guard Dereck Whittenburg launched a 30 foot desperation shot. As it arcs to the basket I think, "My God, they're going to beat us," but Whittenburg's shot is off. As suddenly as hope sprang so sprang NC State's Lorenzo Charles, he grabbed the ball over the rim and stuffed it home as the clock ran out. North Carolina 54, Houston 52. My startled mind slowly grasps that the mighty Cougars have fallen. We were outplayed and outcoached. The smart aleck kid from New York has tricked us, playing a game we did not expect, beating Phi Slama Jama on a last second dunk. I think of this with disgust. But there is no shame in defeat. Houston has the best record in the country even with this loss. They won more games in a row than NC State won all season. Nothing matters now. The season is over. UH, The team of destiny has finished second best. The dream is dead. This year. 205
