Kansas defeats UCLA, 77-76

  • 8 p.m., Dec. 2, 2010
  • Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, KS

FINAL: Mario Little's free throw with 0.7 seconds left gives KU 77-76 win over UCLA

Mario Little hit a free throw with 0.7 seconds, giving the Kansas men's basketball team a 77-76 victory over UCLA on Thursday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

KU led by three before Tyler Honeycutt stole the ball with 13 seconds, then hit a three-pointer to tie it at 76 with four seconds remaining.

KU inbounded immediately, and Little was fouled on a loose ball with less than a second remaining.

"Really, really a poor way to end the game on a call," UCLA coach Ben Howland said after the game.

He made the first free throw before missing the second, and UCLA's full-court heave was wide, giving KU the win.

Reed had a career-high 17 points, while Tyshawn Taylor also contributed 17. Marcus Morris added 16.

Honeycutt scored a career-high 33 points.

KU made just 16 of 30 free throws and was outrebounded by UCLA, 37-32.

KU (7-0) will play Memphis on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

This will be UCLA's best game of the year and Honeycutt will never have another game like this.

Waywardjay

Wow... I never thought Ben Howland would return to his roots and institute full on Pittsburgh North and South Running tactics to grind out the clokc like that.... He looked pelini esque after his team fouls mario.

Ann Oneill

Not sure why Marcus was dribbling behind his back with 2 seconds left. He got lucky there with some great hustle by Little.

Waywardjay

Was this Jaybate's Center tenderizer game... in which Markiefff found out he's not a Center yet ?

Ku_fansince75

Honeycutt---33 frickin' points. This game is definitely a humbling experience. We are very fortunate to win.

Kaw Pickinton

epic win! how is that crap?

fansincewilt

A grind it out win. One that you need and need to win to have a great season. Great game for the guys. We are not going to be shooting the lights out every game. Great win.

Joe Baker

Ugly win! A win is a win.

Jayhawkinatl

What a crappy-ass win!!!!! We are going to lose a lot of games unless we get our team FT% to the mid to upper 70s.

Brian Powell

what a crappy win...but I'll take it.

Runningbeakers84

Wow. Hope this is our one lucky W for the 2010-2011 year.

Waywardjay

With all the calls his team got away with... that should have been an equalizer

Joe Satterwhite

we did everything wrong but lose in this game smh

Tis4tim

The refs couldn't have tried harder to win it for UCLA. Way to pull it out, boys! Whew!

Timeout KU. With 0.7 seconds left, Little should miss the second intentionally.

Little will shoot two with 0.7 seconds left.

Ku08

Out of curiosity, can they overturn a foul call on a video review?

Aerohawk

What a bunch of BS. The last 30 seconds of this game has been a farce.

Waywardjay

jobbed by their own offcials.

Chris Shaw

This is one game where I wish Self would have picked up a "T" at the beginning of the game.

Brian Powell

how do you give up a 3 there?? ugh.

Tis4tim

We'll probably get jobbed again.

Ku_fansince75

Reed pushed but no call. UCLA steals it, and Honeycutt hits a three with four seconds left.

KU fouled, but officials are checking the monitors to see if it happened before the buzzer.

Sparky1958

Local refs here kids!

Brian Powell

Ku08

Oh wow, what a break! Now make a darn FT already!

Tis4tim

Brian Powell in reply to Chris Shaw

taylor is going to get the ball, the undisciplined play was the charge by morris

Aerohawk in reply to Chris Shaw

He isn't fat enough to get away with it.

Ahpersecoachingexperience

Jones misses the front end. Little is tied up on the rebound. KU gets possession.

Chris Shaw

Where is the foul?

Waywardjay

What foul was that ?

Jesse Newell

Marcus called for a hand-check.

Ku_fansince75

DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

Jesse Newell

Taylor makes the second.

Chris Shaw

Win or lose, Self's players have been completely undisciplined tonight. How do you give the ball to Taylor with 30 seconds left on the clock in a 2 point game?

Ahpersecoachingexperience

grease board, nice production budget ya got there

Ksweeney44

Just ugly!

Kesmithstl1

Little is a senior, he needs to have better discipline than that. Kick the ball out!

Jesse Newell

KU 14 of 27 from the line.

Joe Satterwhite

Really? Why are we giving the ball to Taylor? Keep the ball in Reed's hands! Game Management guys!

Runningbeakers84

Make our FT and we can win this.

Aerohawk in reply to Brian Powell

46%

Jesse Newell

Taylor fouled. He'll shoot two with 29 seconds left.

Jesse Newell

Smith puts in a two. KU up only two.

Brian Powell

wow. we are plying so sloppy and undisciplined

hey, what's UCLA's FG%... cause I bet it's unusual for them?

Kesmithstl1

Marcus has played this whole half and only fouled once!

Waywardjay

Unreal. hat was a no- call when hneycutt ran over Kieff earlier.

Marcus makes both.

Aerohawk in reply to Joe Satterwhite

Well, if you are standing next to someone from UCLA with your hands at your side and they score it is a foul.

Ku08

Fifth "and-1 play" in the game for UCLA. Is that good?
