With 15 seconds to go and Duke down by one, Langdon rashly took the ball right at UConn's star defender Ricky Moore in a crowded paint -- and traveled. Ten seconds later, Duke was down three, and there was Langdon dribbling wildly from end to end, around defenders, through his legs, wasting time. He had made it halfway when the buzzer sounded. A noble effort, perhaps, but where was the plan? Where was Krzyzewski? A time-out, a diagrammed play, anything -- random acts of individuality are not normally the Duke way. "The ball was in our best player's hands with an opportunity to win the game," said Krzyzewski. "And that's the way it should be." Graciously put. But Coach K knows better than that.
Oh, and CBS? Play the "One Shining Moment" montage within 10 minutes of game's end, or don't play it at all. It's just not worth waiting four commercial breaks for that kitschy ditty anymore.
