A choke of historic proportions?

Bill Buckner and the '86 Red Sox. Jean Van de Velde and the '99 British Open. Memphis Tigers and the '08 National Championship. Up 9 points with two minutes left, Memphis completed one of the great choke jobs in sports history Monday night, losing in overtime to the Kansas Jayhawks. Missed free throws. A key player fouling out. Where do you think this ranks among all the great sports chokes? -Cyd Zeigler jr.
