Go back to 5:55 left in the game on your DVR. We had scored 13 points in > 14 minutes of the 2nd half. Down by 15. Ball up top. Macon is standing beside Toye, #2 for Vandy, near the baseline. Macon is standing there locking arms with Toye, then makes a move down the baseline towards the ref WHILE STILL HOLDING TOYE’S ARM, and gets the foul called on Toye. Macon makes both, we get a steal, Kingsley gets an old-fashioned three, and we are off to the races.
I LOVE Macon; he is such a smart guard. Those are the things that great guards do. These next 2 years will be so much fun watching him.
He also knew that he was just on the wrong end of a very tough call and wasn’t likely to get jammed on both.
You are right about him being very smart. I can’t stand the way the game is officiating these days. Flopping and contorting after any contact while you have the ball in your hand (or while shooting a jumper) is rewarded and he is very good at selling it without making it obvious he’s selling it.
