Is getting jobbed so far tonight. 5 minute mark and still alive, though.

Fun to watch, even though I hate their style of hoops.

Is getting jobbed so far tonight.

Are they? Either Kansas is the worst ball-handling team in NCAAB, or SIU was called on about 1 out of every 10 reach-in hackjob tonight.

I think Kansas tried really hard to F me tonight, though.

Am I being an oversimplifying armchair douche here, or is the observation that, when the opposing team chooses to guard your players so close & aggressively, the obvious move is to pump-fake a pass at the top of the key to a player running out to the wing and have that player then make a back-cut to the basket, lose his defender, and get the skip pass for an easy 2? I believe Kansas went that route exactly zero times tonight.

Man, I love that style. Thats a helluva basketball team. They make any of those 10 open looks they missed in the first 6 minutes of the game, and they probably win that.

Tatum plays at the next level.

And who is that coach? Those kids play a smart and inspired brand of ball.

What do you guys think you could accomplish in 1.1 seconds?

I know I can do more than stick my hand out and touch something.

WTF was that.

1.1 seconds gets A&M 5 feet (if not 7-8) closer to the rim for the last second shot.

Sorry confused my games.
Thanks consig.

If you are talking about the end of the Memphis/Texas A&M game, that was the right call.

If you watch the replay, the play was not dead until the lady in the stands touches the ball. The Memphis player hit the ball, it bounced IN PLAY and landed out of bounds in the lady's hands. I'm sure that will be the explanation.

I did catch that after they showed it a FEW times, I agree. The right call was made.

Funny thing is, I caught it right away, but the TV guys kept saying maybe .2 comes off. I'm amazed how sometimes TV guys miss obvious plays even after reviewing several times.

I saw the ball hit the ground also and thought there should have been less than 2 seconds on the clock. closer to 1.
