In my opinion the three point shot which they incorrectly counted occurred after the foul. The foul against Simmons probably never should have been called but it occurred before the shot, and I think the replay proved it. At least it did to me. That five point play was really the turning point, but it shouldn’t have mattered.
We didn’t match OSU’s physicality and aggressiveness in the second half. We really had no leadership. I think Z tried, but the seniors certainly didn’t lead. After JB put Mathews and Duncan back in for Poole and Livers, after the freshmen had done a pretty darn good job, I just had a feeling they’d cave. I don’t know, but I’m of the opinion that ALL of the freshmen deserve legitimate playing opportunities. I’m talking maybe a total of 50 minutes or so distributed among the three of them.
