    1. Yes it is. I showed that to Zach after the game and of course the Time stamp shown by ESPN. They even foreshadowed it during and after the game.

  2. “Normally for us, we’re the three-point shooting team,” Jay Wright said on PTI Tuesday. “Oklahoma is a better three-point shooting team than us, so for once, this might work out.” LOL I read between the lines Jay Wright.

  3. Cavernous 71,500-seat NRG Stadium has a reputation as a house of anguish and frustration for outside shooters. With no walls or bleachers behind either basket, the backdrop seems to challenge shooters' depth perception even more than other domed stadiums.

  4. "Tough place to shoot because of the elevated floor and open background," one assistant coach whose team has played at NRG Stadium told Yahoo Sports.

    Added another assistant coach from a different school, "It's just absolutely wide open. It feels like the court is floating in the great abyss."
