We all make mistakes in life, but certain poor decisions stand out more than the others. For Northwestern guard Ashley Deary, that's a bad thing.

Deary realized that one of her basketball shoes needed to be retied during last night's game against Rutgers. Naturally, she wanted to solve this nuisance at her earliest convenience.

The problem is her earliest convenience ended up as Rutgers' greatest opportunity.

Rutgers guard Khadaizha Sanders saw an opening and seized it.

Northwestern still came away with an easy 60-38 victory, but it will be awhile before Deary's teammates or the Northwestern basketball community lets her forget the colossal blunder.
