Not knowing any stats but did BC miss more than three free throws? How many turnovers did Boyd have and did any of those lead directly to Lewis scoring? Did BC miss any easy/open shots? All that I am saying is that there are many things during a game that if a person would take a look at could have been played better that would easily have turned the games outcome. Instead of looking at those costly mistakes, people tend to go directly to the officials to place blame. Officials make mistakes, that's part of it. I would say that without seeing the game that there must have been some calls that Lewis thought were bad as well.
    I am not trying to singl you out personally, this kind of thing happens, has happened and will always happen in alot of games with all schools, all locations. I just don't like to or hear anyone blame officiating on deciding the outcome of a game.

    Congrats to Lewis County on the win and good luck in the semi's.
    Congrats to Boyd Co. as well on getting to the regional tournament, there were plenty of teams that didn't make it to Morehead.
    How many time have you heard a winning team complain about the refs!! I for one have cried about the refs after losing. But after calming down I set and think of the tons of mistakes we made or a shot here or there that could have won the game! Good post O R.

Come on, MEANINGLESS!!! You'd better think about that!!!
    A good shooter feels no pressure about any shot regardless of the score. If you don't know that then you must know little or nothing about basketball.

    Thanks, and that goes for everyone and any sport. I have been guilty of the same on more than one occasaion. No one is immune to it.
    Of course, come to think of it just ask Ram or anyone around Raceland, I have never disputed an officials call in my life...........
