I'm getting called away from my tv, so I'm going to be following this thread to get some context to go with the score of the game. Go Blue! Beat State!

That was a nice call at the end, and I can understand a bit with all the jersey grabbing, but that should have been a foul call. You can't grab a guy's jersey when he is going for the ball like that.

But we would also have gotten hammered with a few other calls that were either missed or let go. They called a pretty damn loose game, both teams with only five fouls with one minute remaining. And it's not like it wasn't a physical game.

This loss hurts like a motha. We should have won, as much as I hate saying that anymore.

He probably would have, but then again UM probably got away with a couple of grabs. My issue was that on the final shot, grabbing a guy on his way up needs to be a foul. I know the refs don't want to decide the game, but the part everyone forgets is that you are just letting a blatant foul decide the game. It was a close call (it was a tough shot to begin with, and I'm not sure Simms would have hit it completely unmolested), but a call needed to be made. Also, considering what happened to Manny last year for elbowgate, it was another dagger to see Lucas hit the game-winning shot when he may very well have been sitting on the bench if LLP had simply crashed to the floor and rolled around a bit.

That is heartbreaking.

I haven't watched a lot of M basketball this year so I don't know how it compares to other games... But I've gotta say, hats off to the student section. Great energy from them tonight. I think having a great student section is key to having a great bball program all around, and the students represented tonight.
