add another item to the pile as to why this was a bad idea
Did Green fould out at 7:10 and still play the rest of game. Here is the info from the CBS play by play.
First Half: 18:53 Foul on Draymond Green
First Half: 3:33 Foul an Draymond Green. Appears he missed a layup and fouled L Smith and he made 1 of 2.
Second Half: 19:09 Technical Foul on Draymond Green. Also counts as a personal.
Second Half: 10:14 Foul on Draymond Green.
Second Half: 7:10 Foul on Draymond Green.
Thats 5 fouls. I have see two scenarios stated so far. One is that his second foul was not attributed to him (ESPN says it was on Kearney). The second is that the officials did not attribute or count the Technical foul as a personal foul, thus keeping his total at 4.
The announcers said during the telecast that the foul was on Green. Did they make a mistake or was it changed to Kearney later in the game? Either way I don't think MSU should be complaining about the refs.

TOURNEY BRACKET (click to enlarge)
Article talks about season awards in all of college basketball. Trey Burke first team All Big Ten, THJ second team. Crean gets COY, Zeller FOY in the Big Ten.
I'm personally more upset about Crean getting COY over Beilien. Thoughts?
Brutal news. Hope he recovers as quickly as possible.
This could have huge ramifications in the B1G and NCAA tourneys as well.
So does the fact that we are now Big Ten Champs give Trey Burke the nod for Big Ten Fresh of the Year over Zeller?? I think it was really close, but I think the fact that he is a starting PG on the Banner team should hopefully put him over the top.
