    Brutal ending. We were taught that play in high school.

    12 points for The Jake.

    Two seconds left, tie game. Wisconsin calls time out and is inbounding after game tying basket by WKU. WKU guarding the player throwing the ball in bounds as he runs the baseline. Wisconsin player sets up to draw a charge on the WKU player guarding the inbounding player for Wisconsin and gets the call. Wisconsin player makes the free throw to win the game for the Badgers.

    WKU just got cheated out of an overtime period. That's possibly the worst end of game call I've ever seen.

    Terrible call. Player flopping even before minimal contact. Cheated is definitely the correct word.

    I thought it was a foul on WKU. There were other calls/non calls that bothered me more. Tough loss.

    One of the worst calls I've ever seen. Absolute hose job.

    Why did the official on the baseline signal block if it was a charge? I thought the guy from Wisconsin didnt have his left foot planted when contact was made (I watched it live) and replay confirmed it for me. Thought it was a bad call. But thats a play 4th graders are taught.

    He called it a block and then changed it to charge? Terrible work by official.

    It can be effective, but I hate that play. Hate that the officials would reward it, but it would be tough for him not to.

    Can't be a charge if it was called on the defensive player.

    Glad to see a bad Badgers team post a win. Hard to watch at times.
