The refs are OUT OF CONTROL.
I mean, they couldn’t get them the game, but what a vile example of cooperative home court cooking.
That last 3 point foul call was RIDICULOUS.
They tried to turn the game late in the first half with a couple of ridiculous charge calls and then just blatantly let Wisconsin bump the dribbler or the rebounder and no foul call on a play that’s a foul on the road team 20 times out of 20.
In the end game, it was like, “is that a foul you want? Oh, that’s not the one you want? Okay, not blowing a foul. Oh, now you want a foul? Just let us know and we’ll blow the whistle if you can breath on the guy. Is that the man you want to send to the line? Ok, BLEEP!”
I really don’t even know that they managed to foul Watson, but they sure as hell blew that as fast as they could. Was great to see Ibi make them eat that one. We allowed a wide open 3 in a late sequence (think it could have cut things to 5, so that was scary), but we mostly overcame the Badgers, the crowd, and the refs.
Coach B has got to get right with when Z can and can’t be on the floor. You couldn’t leave him out after the first missed front end when you knew we had one more 1-1 to go.
