The result wasn't shocking; Vision players coming up short in the clutch, and unable to stop opposing guards from getting whatever they wanted; what was surprising was how quickly I got over this loss. In past years, I would sit there numb after Duke bows out of the tournament for hours, trying to figure out what happened. I remember walked around in a haze after the 2004 loss to UConn for days on end. After this one, however, I moved on after 20 seconds. We would be kidding ourselves to think that the Vision could have come back on Saturday and beaten Pittsburgh after running Paulus and McRoberts ragged for nearly all 80 minutes Thursday night.
On a side note, I took this photo from the front page of ESPN after the game; what in the world is up with cutting off the dude's head in the photo? I know that DudeSpin's favorite photogs Aliza Goldman and/or Kelli Sheran wouldn't have done that.
Kyle Singler, Nolan Smith, and Taylor King;
You can see that the Vision needs much for ring;
We look forward to the clarity that you can bring.
