Video: Two blown layups cost Xavier women a Final Four berth

A mere four nights after the Xavier men's basketball team lost a Sweet 16 thriller in double overtime to Kansas State, the school's women's basketball team set a new standard for heartbreak.
Xavier senior Dee Dee Jernigan missed not one, but two wide-open uncontested layups in the final 16 seconds of a tie game against top-seeded Stanford, either one of which would have put the Musketeers in position to advance to their first Final Four. Instead Stanford's Jeanette Pohlen made Xavier pay, driving the length of the floor in 4.4 seconds for the game-winning layup to give the Cardinal a 55-53 victory in the Sacramento Regional final for a third straight trip to the Final Four.
