First ACC Semifinal since Brownell's second season. The Tigers should have beaten Duke in that game to make the Final and secure an NCAA bid, but the refs screwed em on a blatant foul of Rod Hall and no call.

Sorry, guys, major wifi issues here at court level.

Tigers got off to a pretty good start, with the game tied late in the 1st half, but the Hoos opened up a 9-point halftime lead.

Eli has had a great start to the half, hauling in an offensive board and scoring 2 FG's and 3 FT's for the Tigers' first 7 points. His 3-point play cut the lead to 4, but the Hoos have gone on a run and opened up a 12-point lead with under 12 mins left.

MITCHELL FOR 3!!! Lead down to 7 after that and a pair of FT's Mitchell made. Under 9 mins to play.

Hoos score to push it back to 9.

Eli made a pair of free throws on a technical foul, and Reed scored to cut the lead to 5, but the Hoos lead by 9 now with 4 mins left to play. Tigers need two or three 3's if they're gonna have a chance!

MITCHELL FOR 3!!! Lead down to 6 with 2 mins left.

Ugh Hoos score to push it back to 8.

DeVoe makes a free throw. Tigers trail by 7 with 1:30 left.

Hoos hit a 3. That's a dagger.

Simms hits a pair of free throws. Tigers trail by 7 with 1:10 left.

Tigers have played great defense these last couple inbounds plays to force a couple timeouts. They trail by 5 after Hoos missed a FT and DeVoe drove for a layup. 26 secs left.

Tigers lose 64-58. Not a bad showing against the team that has to be the favorite to win the whole show.

I'll have post-game PC posted in a bit!
