LSU giving Duke a run...

Postby ExPatriatePen on Thu Mar 23, 2006 8:41 pm

21-14 with 6 minutes left in the first half.

They're out rebounding Duke like crazy.

Only issue is Big Baby and another LSU stater are on the bench with two fouls already.

I guess we'll see how deep LSU is.

I would be very happy if Duke lost.

Me too, but that's asking for a lot.

LSU is playing them much tougher than anyone expected. I heard an odds maker in NY calling this the Blowout of the Sweet Sixteen.

Wow, if you were just watching your first NCAA mens bball game and didn;t know Dukes tradition, you'd think LSU was the favorite here.

Very Impressive.

It's illegal in hockey too. I hear that players get "5 to 10" all the time. :wink:

College basketball can not move the 3 point line back soon enough.

The real good shooters will still be able to make 3's and it will still be part of the game but no longer will average shooters be chucking it up from behind the line. It also might bring back the mid-range jumper that no one knows how to shoot anymore because why shoot a mid range jumper when you can just back up 6' and shoot 3's.

What an ending to Texas/WVU. Pittsnogle hit a fadeaway three pointer to tie, and then Paulino answers right back at the other end to win the game for Texas.

Two clutch shots, really liked Texas going without a timeout there (they may not have had any which makes this argument irrelevant), I like that call in general in that situation, its a lot easier to get an open shot against a scrambling defense than one who has had time to set up after a timeout.

Great comeback by UCLA, Gonzaga gave it away by not being able to score any points over the last couple of minutes. The announcers were not on their game though, on the no basket for UCLA the foul was on Raivio and Batista definetely grabbed the hand of the guy while going for that rebound which the announcers also claimed not to see.

Raivio should have been on the free throw line with 2.6 left when he dribbled the ball up the court, it ended being a no call and the jump ball which went to UCLA. Good games tonight in the second halves of the doubleheaders.

That was definitely a foul on Bautista, in fairness to Elmore the replay angle was awful, still he should have seen it live, it was pretty obvious.

Raivio probably got fouled, but he was so out of control it's hard to call something there. I thought he traveled twice there too, although if there was a foul to call the foul happened first.

Gonzaga got robbed. The UCLA player that dove on the floor to pick up the loose ball at the end of the game slid 4 or 5 feet. That is supposed to be an automatic travelling call.

UCLA also got robbed when the ref waved off the basket ona foul not too long before... it evens out. Besides, since when do the refs actually enforce traveeling? :)
