I understand its technically the correct call. And I understand one day after UNC Ashville committed the same violation all these players should be aware of the rule. But seriously, fuck this lane violation shit. At the very least, like Charles Barkley said, the refs should give these kids a warning. And more realistically they should just put their fucking whistle in their pocket. The Syracuse game was bad enough, but lets be honest – that didnt decide the true outcome of that game. But Notre Dame/Xavier tonite pretty much was decided by that whistle. That was as pivotal as a call as I’ve ever seen.
Brutal. Just brutal. After a wild evening of two 15 seeds pulling off miracles to make true March Madness happen, we finish off the night with another zebra deciding the outcome. No luck of the Irish for this 7/10 matchup.
