If you're a college basketball fan, you've probably thoroughly enjoyed this NCAA Tournament, full of incredible last-second finishes.

Saturday's game did not disappoint in that regard -- but it also included a foul call that will be debated for a long time.

Top-seeded Virginia trailed No. 5 seed Auburn 62-60 with 1.5 seconds left in Saturday's semifinal matchup in Minneapolis. In the final second, Virginia's Kyle Guy put up a 3-point shot that was no good -- but the Tigers' Samir Doughty was called for a foul on the shot with 0.6 seconds to play.

Guy calmly made all three free throws to left the Cavaliers to their first-ever championship game.

Was it the right call? Judge for yourself.

To further boil the blood of Auburn fans, it appeared Virginia's Ty Jerome could have been called for a double dribble just seconds earlier.
