State lost to Wake Forest 70-69 and falls to 1-3 ACC.
Tim Brando of the ACC Network said the officials did an excellent job last night in Winston-Salem. And it showed.
Jamie Luckie & Crew once again took center stage, calling State and Wake combined for 52 fouls — 26 each — and 70 free throws — Wake 28-of-39; State 21-of-31.
This wasn’t an isolated event, either. We were told the officiating changes would improve the game, but instead they’ve made college basketball an unwatchable mess.
In the end, State still couldn’t hit enough FTs (and somehow decreased its ridiculous-worthless-uncontrollable stat of defensive FT%) and still can’t win against a zone.
