Rob Dillingham believes he missed Saturday’s game-winner because he will make it in March

“I feel like it didn’t go in because it’s going to go in March.”

NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Kentucky Jordan Prather-USA TODAY Sports

The Kentucky Wildcats fell just short in overtime on Saturday in their loss to the Texas A&M Aggies.

With the game in its final moments of regulation, Rob Dillingham, who had just drilled three straight 3s to tie the game at 87, had a chance to win the game for the Cats following two Aggie free throws.

With three seconds left, Dillingham let another 3 go that was inches away from winning the game for the Cats.

Dillingham admitted after the game that he thought the shot was going in when it left his hand. However, he believes that he missed that one because that is a shot he will hit in March when it matters most.

“Honestly, that shot should have gone in,” Dillingham stated. “But I feel like it didn’t go in because it’s going to go in March. That’s how I look at it.”

It was a tough loss for the Cats, but I’m sure we are all fine with that shot not going in if it means we will have some magic happen when the NCAA Tournament rolls around.
