How Virginia Choked Away A Statistically Unchokeable Lead

UVA was up 10 with 42 seconds left in their ACC tournament game with Miami. That's a lead that a Bill James formula defines as 100 percent safe. Then, this happened: Miami three, missed free throws, Miami three, turnover, Miami dunk, turnover, Miami layup.

Perhaps even worse, from first three to tying basket only took 24 seconds. Virginia was lucky to get it to (and lose in) overtime.
