When [Louisville's] Kyle Kuric got loose for a late dunk that made the score 62-57, cheerleader Jordan Alcazar was so thrilled that he bounded onto the court, grabbed the basketball and threw it toward the ceiling of a delirious KFC Yum! Center.
Just one problem: there was still half a second to play in overtime, so that was a technical foul on Alcazar for imitating Steve Bartman. After making the two technical free throws, Pitt had a final heave from near midcourt at a tie.Another lesson in common sense for the kids at home: if you're not playing in the game, DON'T TOUCH THE BALL. Since Louisville still got the win, this will eventually be forgotten about as an honest mistake, and Jordan Alcazar will not be kicked off the cheerleading team. However, he will probably be feeling the heat from fellow Louisville students and fans for the next few days.
Despite bizarre finish, Louisville hangs on [ESPN]
