I don't have one iota of an issue with that play. I feel end-of-game situations are quickly getting out of hand in this regard where suddenly, it's not okay to keep trying if you're winning or losing. Heaven forbid a player plays out the entire 40 minutes.
It reminds me when the Mavericks had a game in hand last year but the opposing team refused to give up and was hard pressing the full length of the floor. As such, Brian Cardinal stepped up with a big screen at mid-court. Folks objected to the screen, but it's a basketball game and the clock was still ticking. It's how these things work.
In the game last night, I'm doubting Iowa State cared that a player on a team that was about to lose to them by double digits stole the ball with four seconds left. A complete non-issue.
I dont have a problem with that play either. But to me there are certain when it comes to the end of a game where its clearly decided. A b!tch move would have been Lamb not playing defense then pretending to shake the players hand and stealing it (happened in NBA a couple times).
The missed dunk pretty much summarized Uconn that game which i agree with (commentator).
