Obama interrupts Oakland-Texas

I only heard via Twitter, obviously, because I was at the game, but President Obama's speech about the situation in Libya sent the second-round game on CBS to a split-screen for what I've been told was about 50 seconds to the final minute.
Here's what you missed:
  • The questionable foul called on Larry Wright. Cory Joseph splits at the line to give Texas a six-point.
  • Reggie Hamilton's 3-pointer rims out with 47 seconds left.
  • Keith Benson fouls to stop the clock with 43 seconds left. Joseph makes two more free throws to push the lead to eight.
  • Hamilton elects for the easy two, his layup cuts the lead down to six with 28 seconds left.
  • Oakland timeout with 28 seconds left.
  • Wright intentionally fouls J'Covan Brown to stop the clock. Brown makes both (he was 12 for 12 from the line Friday).
  • Wright missed a jumper. Hamilton got the rebound, Benson missed a jumper. Hudson got the board and put it back in to cut it to six points.
  • Drew Valentine steals the ball and Benson gets fouled down low. They put a split second back on the clock and he closes out his career with two makes at the line to pull Oakland within four at the horn.
