I'm not very clued in to basketball, and I was hoping the community could explain something from last night's game (sorry to go poking around that open wound).
It seemed to me that VT got to the line, A LOT; like they were in the double bonus while Michigan was still inbounding the ball after a non-shooting foul. I checked the box score, and sure enough VT was 19-21 on free throws and our Wolverines were 4-7. (The whole game in a nut shell right there; they had fewer misses on 21 attempts than we did on 7!)
However, I've seen no consternation at all among our community, either during the game or after. I saw no reaction from the Michigan bench. Were all those foul calls (and non-calls) legit? Is there a reason why we maize and blue colored glasses wearing fans have no beef with the officials? I'm not looking to start a controversy; I honestly believe there is something about BB I don't understand.
Announced attendance of 9,981 and it wasn't even close to that.
Especially bad for a Challenge game. 3rd worst-crowd for one here ever with the two ones that were worse being in the Ellerbe era and Beilein's first year where we won 10 games.
Football season still on the brain? Only averaging 10,074 through 4 games and that number will likely drop to 4 figures with the thrilling game on Saturday against Kennesaw State.
