"They can talk all they want about Tobacco Road. Out here, we got the good stuff." - Bill Walton during last night's Washington-Oregon broadcast. #legend
I think Bob Knight breaks the game down pretty well, and does a decent enough job (relatively) of trying not to be a dick. Both Walton and Knight are a million miles ahead of Dan Dakich.Walton is the man.
Anybody watch New Mexico/UNLV? Wonder where Musberger was staying. I say The Mirage. But anyway, Bob Knight is so bad. Amazing how ESPN keeps that douche employed.
It's not even that. They have no size on the inside. They got killed on the offensive glass last night. Really bad shot selection to boot.Duke looked like Herb Sendek NC State last night. The 3's didn't fall and they didn't know what to do. Teams with that approach never go deep in the tournament.
The youngest Plumlee is quietly turning into a pretty solid player. Something to look out for. I remember the year they won the title, Zoubek kind of transformed from a punch line into a force inside over the course of the season.It's not even that. They have no size on the inside. They got killed on the offensive glass last night. Really bad shot selection to boot.
This. So many focus on the placement of the feet with a block/charge. But like Chase said, if the offensive player has already begun a "basketball move" and initiated the shot motion they he is entitled to finish his movement. This is how the rule has always been, but the refs have always looked only at the whether a player was set or at that stupid restricted arc. You'd think with the new points of emphasis this year they'd get the call right, but of course they didn't at Cameron IndoorHood was still shuffling his feet and moving right when the shot motion was initiated and still never got to the spot. It's a blocking foul and it's not close, especially with the knew charge/blocking rule.
This.It was a truly awful call. But the call did not effectively end the game. They still had a chance. There was enough time left. Boeheim going postal and giving Duke 4 shots and the ball lost them the game. That's why I laughed so hard when it happened.
