For a second there Monday night, everything was great for Ikenna Ndugba. His team, Bryant University, was ahead of Brown, and he was dribbling out the clock on an exhilarating win. Ndugba was so happy about the victory he even threw the ball in the air in celebration, the way teams sometimes do after winning a championship.

There was only one problem: Ndugba’s team didn’t win the game.

Indeed, Bryant lost 91-90 thanks to Brown a lay-up with 3.8 seconds left and Ndugba ignominious decision to run out the clock instead of pushing the ball up-court for a final shot.
