Where you shoot 48% from the field
14-31 from 3
17 assists vs only 10 turnovers

answer

-play 5 vs 8
-miss 7 more free throws then the other team despite taking 14 fewer
-forget you are allowed to defensive rebound

Or perhaps forget that the other team can bash you out of the way for loose balls and rebounds and not get a foul called. It was far more the number one attain anything else.

Well, put another way:

-- You hit 21 fewer free throws than the other team;

-- You have 21 fewer rebounds than the other team.

With those realities, the question is more like: how do you WIN that game?

Five vs eight is the primary factor. UNC and Duke won't have this advantage at NCAA tournament though.
