2017 NCAA Tournament Games Thread


#201

I’ve seen a lot of guys pick up their dribble for no reason today.


#202

Gonna be an interesting finish between Arkansas-UNC. Razorbacks have no business against this team and yet its close. SEC with a much better showing this tourney than I expected. Hope South Carolina continues the trend.


#203

Be shocked if Arkansas didn’t find a way to lose this


#204

Who does that guy think he is, Derrick Walton?


#205

This Arkansas half court offense is something


#206

I’ve only watched the last 3 minutes, so I’m really wondering how on earth this team scored 65 points today.


#207

Uh how is that unc ball?


#208

Refs can’t even get it right on a review.

Then on the following UNC possession, they get away with a charge. Awful.


#209

And how is that not a charge or a travel. Dude took four steps and barreled thru a defender.


#210

Don’t you have to call something there? Way too much contact for a no-call.


#211

Maybe five steps on that play. What were the refs doing?


#212

Trying so hard not to screw up the game and thus screwing up the game.


#213

Make up call at other end. Just don’t understand basketball refs. Make calls where they can’t even see the play and don’t make calls right in front of their face


#214

NCAA must really want UNC to win this one…two awful call/no-calls against Arkansas.


#215

I turned on this game when it was 65-60 Arkansas. I’m still trying to figure out how UA was ever possibly ahead - they showed absolutely nothing in the time I was watching.


#216

And UNC tries to foul in that last 10 seconds and they still didn’t call anything. God, what a crappy job by the officials.


#217

They can only score in full court chaos situations. Anything in the half court is just a prayer


#218

I can’t imagine being a college basketball coach. Between the dirty recruiting that is rampant, the inability to have any continuity in your program bc of the one and done rule, and the absolute joke that is the officiating at the college level; I don’t know how they don’t all go mad.

I guess all of Tom izzo’s temper tantrums make more sense.


#219

Yeah, and because of that, I really can’t blame Collins for his tech. Those refs were horrible all game but how do you miss a goaltending where the defenders hand is through the rim (including the net!). That would have cut it to 3 with momentum. The ball was there, the action was there, wasn’t ANYONE watching the play? The guy deserves a break - he’s working with Northwestern. Not the easiest to turn around when you can’t recruit anyone and everyone.


#220

Oregon losing at half. Would be nice to catch a break in terms of opponent and get Rhode Island, but they have some good players too. And I’m sure EC Matthews would love to have a big game against Michigan.
