Your Gleaming, Perfect Bracket Was Just Ruined By An Incredibly Dumb Intentional Foul

Your Gleaming, Perfect Bracket Was Just Ruined By An Incredibly Dumb Intentional Foul
  • Rick Chandler

Not since Michigan’s Chris Webber called a timeout that his team didn’t have have I felt this sorry for young basketball player. Vanderbilt’s Matthew Fisher-Davis, with his team up by 1 and 14 seconds remaining, somehow thought it would be wise to intentionally foul Vandy’s Bryant McIntosh as he moved up the court.

The two gift free throws gave Northwestern a 67-66 lead.

So Vandy inbounds and puts up a long three to try and win it. Nope.

Wildcats win, 68-66 — their first-ever NCAA Tourney win. They had never even been to the tournament. Hmm — I hope the media takes note of this.

“GET OUT!” (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on hand to watch her son play).

Fisher-Davis owned it afterward. “It was jut a dumb-ass foul. I didn’t know what the score was. We lost because of me.” That just makes us feel for him more.
