    I said yesterday this was starting to feel like Maryland winning the title in the early 2000s. It just never felt right with them at the top of the polls and all of the big dogs were picked off. Not their fault, but they most certainly leave a lot to be desired.

    They left A LOT of wide open three point shots.

    I have seen Ty Jerome in the first round in some NBA mock drafts. Slight chance he leaves too.

    It looked like it was a good game. Too bad I had to work. I saw the 9:20 tip time and saw no reason to bother.

    Heard someone say this morning that closing the path to the rim is in the TTU defensive DNA. That being said, that was NOT the situation to triple-team the man driving to the basket.

    Coach Beard commented after the game that they practice that situation every practice and they are not supposed to leave the 3 point shooter. They practice staying on the 3 point line and allowing the layup. It was another one of many bad plays by Culver down the stretch for Texas Tech.

    No one has brought up the overturned call where Hunter knocked the ball out of bounds. I do not think that call should have been overturned. The video was not conclusive enough.

    Plus, Guy fouled him before the second defender got to him. Hacked him over the arm as clear as could be. That hasn’t been mentioned much.

    I thought the video was pretty clear on it hitting the Tech player's hand after it was poked out by Hunter. That was a HUGE play cause UVA was only up 2 at the time with just over a minute to go.

    His stock will never be higher. Most project him to leave; as well he should.

    I never saw video where Moretti's pinkie finger touched the ball in that split second. It looked like it might have touched the ball but it was not absolutely clear. There wasn't a clear enough picture in my opinion. In that situation on that play I want to be able to print the picture that proves beyond a doubt that his pinkie is touching the ball. There was no picture clear enough to overturn the call.

    That call is where super slo-mo replay has hurt the game. Without the super high resolution high speed shutter camera that call was easy - out on Virginia. It was clearly 'knocked out' by the Virginia player. If the back of a pinkie grazed the ball during a normal dribbling action - so what.

    Glad to see this and confirm Virginia actually won? Tuned in for "One Shining Moment" and thought that team that Zion Williamson played on had won, since he was in about half of the highlights??

    So you’re okay if it went off his pinkie for his team to still get the ball?

    Honestly, if you used 4K frame by frame on every slapped ball, it would like go to the defensive team each time. The ball will likely roll off the pinky most of the time.
