[quote=“rwd5035, post:2, topic:3055”]I wasn’t actually that impressed by the game. I thought Carolina dominated, and their inability to close out Duke cost them the game. Well that, and a blatantly missed travel call on Curry, and a non goal tend call on a Kendall Marshall layup in the 1st half. That’s a 5 point swing over the course of the game that proved costly.
The officiating was horrid as well. Every touch was a foul. I remember a three point play by Plumlee where he beat McAdoo on the baseline. James just stuck his arms in the air over his head, and Plumlee hit the bucket with very minimal contact, and they blew the whistle. There were numerous instances for Carolina as well like this.
I thought Roy Williams needed to get the ball more to Zeller, and to Barnes. Barnes got white hot in the 2nd half, and would go long stretches of the game without the ball. Zeller had 19 pts and 8 rbs after the 1st half, and hardly got the ball in the 2nd. Poor coaching.
Carolina/Kentucky was a way better game than this IMO. Much higher quality of basketball.[/quote] :
Not surprised to see whining about bad officiating, even if from a non-PSU game.
Surprised there hasn’t been more, given the myopic perspective taken by some.
