It’s unrealistic to expect our team to play well enough to overcome the lopsided officiating. That’s just too much advantage. Oh yeah, they could improve their free throws and make other improvements in execution but I don’t think it would ever be quite enough.
I’m in agreement with other posters that college basketball is rigged. If you want to call me a whiner or conspiracy theorist, suit yourself. The video posted above speaks for itself. The stats speak for themselves. It’s all made possible by calling touch fouls on one end and allowing muggings on the other.
