I’m 60 years old and have watched a lot of NCAA tourney games, and I have never seen more one-sided officiating in my life. Never. Foul discrepancy. Free throw discrepancy. Can’t even see on the replay what was obvious to everyone else. Disgraceful. We didn’t really have a fair chance and still almost won.
I totally agree. And I rarely flat out point the finger at refs. But they protected the big boys. And the TV dollars. Sorry. They did.
Not only was there the huge FT disparity, and the obvious charge, but there was the deflected 3…which should have been a foul. After the kid got some ball he got plenty of Macon’s hand and arm. Should have been 3 shots. Game changer.
