This play was referenced in the Wake Up Deadspin post, but deserves a closer look. Florida State came really, really close to beating Virginia Tech in the ACC quarterfinals last night, but then the replay showed the purported game-winner didn't leave Derwin Kitchen's hand until just after the buzzer. Woe.

Update: Tipster Jay D. sent in an interesting picture showing a tenth of a second discrepancy between the clock atop the basket and the one on the scoreboard, for what it's worth (and he claims it was worth the game itself).
