Why did my hydroponic basil wither and die?

I have been using a lot of basil and so I figured it'd be a good idea to get a hydropic plant. I have never had a green thumb so I probably should have known better, but maybe with some tips, I could keep it alive. When I got home, I removed the plant with roots attached and removed any low hanging leaves and then followed the instructions and placed it in a container of water with the roots covered. Now, after 3 days it is all wilted away and looks quite pathetic. Any tips?
