It sppears that jam band fave of way too many — Phish — has a song out that will sooner rather than later be on the playlist of all Cardinal fans. The theme of the tune is that magic moment in U of L hoops lore when Memphis State’s Darius Washington Jr. missed two FTs with time expired in the conference tourney final that gave U of L the title.
For me, it’s one of those 9/11, Kennedy Assassination, Walk on the Moon moments. I remember exactly where I was and whom I was with.
Because it is cbsports.com’s Matt Norlander who broke the story, I’m just going to link you to his article here, which includes a rendition of the song, the lyrics as well as video of the dubious achievement itself to be savored one more time.
And, hey, you know who was coaching Memphis State at the time?
Sure you do.
