What's a harder way to lose a basketball game?

A) Losing when the other team makes a half-court shot at the buzzer

or

B) Losing because your team's dunk doesn't count (held onto the ball for a split second too long)

Cincinnati's game-tying dunk was waived off and Texas lost to Northern Iowa's game-winning half court shot. Which is the harder loss to swallow

    If I was playing. I would rather lose by them making lucky buzzer shot. That way you know you were probelly the better team but the other team just got a lucky shot and you could live with that. Losing a game by which a dunk doesn't count would hurt a lot more. Because knowing if you didn't go for the dunk but rather just getting off the shot quicker or Just laying it in would suck.. gotta be smart don't go for a dunk if you don't have the time lol just get it up and in before that buzzer
