Just over a minute left to play, and USF is down 62-58 with Villanova’s Dwayne Anderson at the line to complete a three-point play. Anderson drove to the lane and made an acrobatic layup to give the Wildcats the lift.

Augustus Gilchrist, who has 18 points and six rebounds, went 1-for-4 from the free-throw line on two straight ocassions just minutes ago.

That certainly would have given USF a better chance…
