|Cliff Ellis waited a decade to watch Clemson loss|

Former Clemson basketball coach Cliff Ellis waited ten years before he watched the heartbreaking 1990 NCAA tournament contest - Connecticut vs Clemson. Tate George's jumper with one second lifted UConn into the Elite Eight.
Earlier in that year, Ellis coached Clemson to an ACC regular-season first-place finish.
"It took me 10 years to watch it," Ellis said after his team won at Central in improbable fashion, thanks to a late four-point play. "It was an ESPN Classic. My daughter called up and said, 'The game is on. It's time for you to watch it if you want to watch it.' It was 10 years. I was at Auburn at the time. We had just come off an SEC championship, so I was feeling good, and I watched it. It still hurt. The toughest loss, overall, that I've probably endured."
