    • Well, sometimes there are some pretty bad NO- calls but no ref wants to make a bad call! The no-call is forgotten

      My son said, BTW, many times, calling the girls games is a fate worse than death.

    • <<No one wants the zebras to decide the outcome. >>

      Ain't it the truth? What about that Villanova traveling call?

    • of your portfolio. Check out LCAV. Bot in December with a basis of 23, received 2 divs and 50% more shares in a 3/2 split. This stock goes up in small steps, and at this moment is 33.37. It is a small company, but it has its act together with its opening of new LasikPlus vision centers for the correcting of eye problems. Check out key statistices and you will see the return on assets and equity to be excellent. Because the float is 18.6M shares, more splits are possible.

    • My son refereed BB for yrs. The "good" refs do not call fouls in the waning seconds unless the losing team wants the winning team to go to the foul line.
      You do not call fouls that will influence the games outcome a la KY. And, if a team is way down you let them finish as quickly as possible.

      No one wants the zebras to decide the outcome.

      Probably OK when all is said and done.

    • Phy,
      I am glad a refs call didn't decide the game.
      I thought he was fouled, chest bump as he went up. In hindsight a good no call, the shot went. I am sure IZZo was screaming no fouls, that why the kid panicked and threw his arms up.

      I root for ND first and Terps second. As for graduating players, if they don't and leave early for NBA, do they have to pay the school back for their free ride?


    • Phy,
      While I am not old, I am old school. When I played BB it was a none contact sport. I agree with Persh, Let 'Em Play, but they should play by the rules. If the refs got back to calling Palming, today's point gaurds would commit a turnover everytime down the floor. The rule states "no part of the dribblers palm may face skyward, this constitutes the end of the dribble"

      Most times they do even when not gaurded or challenged, they just think it looks cool.

      Geezing, Penn

    • Penn:
      I just saw it again and it wasn't a foul. The kid raised his hand before the shot to make sure a foul wasn't called. Don't you think Izzo told them no fouls? And, I wouldn't be for KY even if they were playing the U. of Moscow.

    • Penn:
      I like the timeouts as they are or maybe cut out one of them each half. I would like to see the 5 seconds guarding done away with, and I would like to see the time out while catching the ball, when going out of bounds done away with.

    • Nobody is going to call a foul with time running out; just does not happen in basketball.

      Let 'em play, Persh

    • phy, he was body-checked. It would have knocked me or you flat on our back. haj
