that games NEVER finish in 2 hours. i don't mind watching the uconnvicts go down, except when there is a Duke game on. if that game had gone into OT, we would have missed the entire first half. as it was, we missed the part where Duke played well.

i too was miffed by that "over-scheduling". Interestingly on ESPN2 the 7pm game was over when the Conn-victs game still had almost 7 minutes left. And then the foul-o-rama at the end made the game last even longer. I generally hate those split screens where you see 2 games at once, but i wondered why they didn't do that when the Nova game got into full-foul mode. They didn't even mention that they were in fact supposed to show the Duke game until Duke_MD was at about 16:00 left in the 1st half.

Sooner or later, ESPN in their infinite wisdom will schedule 15 games per night and JUST show us the last 5 minutes of each game.

I love watching someone shooting freethrows.
