I don't blame Pressey at all for that one. I have no idea why Haith thought it was a good idea to start milking the clock with 7-8 minutes to go. People who play not to lose always lose.
If there is one thing Haith can take from this game it is not to take your foot off the gas. ever.
He did this all last year. We almost lost a bunch of games because of it. At Texas, I remember specifically that we started the slowdown with about 10 left and then almost lost.
We had playmakers at the end of the game to bail out the slowdown game. We don't this year.
