seriously i can't get into college basketball for this sole reason. The officiating is so poor.

How you gonna decide a game like that with those two bogus calls

the travel and the flagrant were both bogus.


I guess he did travel, but you see that so many times a game. Even on the next play Arkansas traveled....Definetly shouldnt have been a flagrant...damn, travel calls...brings back some bad flashbacks for me and I'm sure GONYK


seriously that late in the game unless the travel is egregious or effect a scoring play then yes make the call but the kid was just pivoting to make a pass 30 ft from the basket. It had no baring on the play, he was just swinging it around the perimeter. You don't call it that tight there because like you said Arkansas could have easily been called for a travel right after that too.

Also a flagrant? How can you seriously huddle up and say yes that foul had malicious intent and should decide the game. If anything the arkansas player should have been T'd up for flopping like a fish out of water.

I may or may not have violently suppressed any memories of a f*cking bullsh*t traveling call that potentially cost my team a shot at the Final Four to the point that if they were to resurface, my personality would split.

NOVA would wreck any other 8 seed. Wisconsin finished ahead of maryland and northwestern in the BIG 10 and got second in the BIG10 tourement... but marylands a 6 and wisconsin has the same rank as Northwestern? Selection committe F'ed up...

Interesting to compare Fox to Smith. Different kinds of players.

Smith seems like an I. Thomas type of player. Should be a scorer. Total upside will depend on his shooting and playmaking.

Fox has a high defensive ceiling and seems to have a lot of awareness and IQ, and to play unselfishly, tho not clear he can see the court well enough to be a creative passer. His length and speed could eventually make his ceiling high offensively but I think it'll be a while before he can score consistently at the NBA level.

Upper seeds falling off, should make an interesting 8 and Final 4.

So far nothing has happened to change the "Knicks really need to get a top 3 pick" mantra. Sure a lot of the lottery guys have looked impressive but not enough so that it cements them as potential game changers in the NBA.

Agree to an extent. Everyone from 1-8 imo are on even field as far as NBA contribution, any of them could be all-stars imo, and I really don't see the bust factor in any of them as well.

With that said tho, I hope Clarence has a feel for one of them in particular and if so, I want the Knicks to lose as much as possible to be able to acquire that player.

I assume you have Fultz, Ball, Jackson as top 3? I would not be terribly upset with Tatum, Smith or Monk either.

On a side note....that V-series from Cadillac is a real experience to be had. Found it on the smaller side, perhaps it's for short people size-wise. Throw a version of it into the Escalade and a deal could be struck.
