I thought the same thing about the officiating throughout the tournament, some of it went Pitt's way some of it did not, the same could be said for the all the teams but as you said there was just no consistency in it.
The Krauser play is a thing that bothers me about basketball in general. Yes the defender was in the air but he was not out of control and was not going to land on Krauser or right on top of him even. Krauser basically launched himself into the defender with no hope of shooting that basketball, he was just launching himself to get contact.
Now by the way this call is always officiated it should have been a foul but this play has become confused with a play where the defender really is out of control and lands on a shooter in the normal shooting motion.
Its one thing to create contact while shooting its another to simply create contact by going out of your way to do it.
That is my little rant, not that any basketball decision makers care what I say.
