Best BB conference in the country. Good to see. And I'm proud of our guys, they scrap man. GO BUCKS!
Craft is one of the best defenders in college basketball, if not the best but nobody ever mentions his turn overs. Don't get me wrong because he could play on my team anytime but let's tell it like it is.
He has one of the better turnover ratios in the country. That is how it is. He isn't perfect.
awful way to end the game though, craft was clearly mugged on the shot. I always hate to end the game with free throws so I agree when you dont call a cheap foul but if the defense clearly fouls to the point of not allowing the shooter a chance to score then you have to call the foul.
I disagree. The refs were letting them play and Craft was allowed to aggressively hand check the entire game. They didn't call the flagrant foul that would have given Michigan the game. Doesn't make sense to call it close in the last few seconds.

Close call? I thought he got mugged on that last play.
there is a difference between a handcheck and bending a kids head backwards. Even Dick Vitale commented that you gotta call that foul, that's how obvious it was, you can't freaking tackle a kid to win the game it's not football.
Bitching about the refs is pointless. There are all kinds of plays during a game that could/should be called differently. Would you prefer the refs take away the 3 point shot that clearly left his hand after the shot clock went to zero? Call the obvious flagrant foul and end the game? Or only the last play?
I watched the game as well, and in all fairness, I thought it was a foul. BUT, after watching BB in this conference since "our" last N.C.................I was shocked to see that the BUCKS were not screwed .............that bad. In general, the visiting team, plays against 5-8 bodies on the court at any given time in this league. That is just a FACT. So, by that standard..............this was a fairly well-called game.............NOW if this was a home game...........I'd be screaming!!!!!
Edit..........one time, the BUCKS had to FIGHT the whole damn ARENA and barely escaped with their lives!!!!!!
