    Kentucky beat Louisville in the tourney thanks to refs.

    And everyone saw it.

    Then they should have lost to Michigan... and refs saved them yet again.

    Yes, Harrison made an amazing shot- but it shouldn't have mattered.

    That's why I can say those teams are better. Kentucky lost those games in any honest fan's eyes.

    That is ridiculous. Louisville got beat because they had a piss poor shooting outing. Russ Smith was only 4-10 from the line and 1-7 from 3, and they had very poor shot selection quite often. There was one weak foul call against Harrell, but beyond that, that game was officiated very well.

    And with regards to Michigan, both teams were called for 14 fouls, so that is about as even as it gets. Especially considering that Stauskas wasn't called for a single foul, despite the fact he had to push off almost every time he drove the lane to get any sort of a shot off. The refs have been fine this tournament. Are there missed calls here and there? Of course, its basketball, it moves fast, there are always going to be some missed calls. But this idea UK is getting favoritism is just sour grapes.

    Even with a piss poor shooting outing, it still took refs to bail Kentucky out vs Louisville.


    And fouls weren't the issue with Michigan/UK. 2 uncalled basket interferences, and a clear 3 pointer called a 2 pointer were.

    That, and Randle being allowed to hack like no other I've ever witnessed in basketball.

    It's not a 3 if your foot is on the line Buster. It was close, but I think they got it right.

    Yeah, saw the pic and had to put it up. Kentucky barely got it done. I knew that would be a good game. Of course, Florida didn't show up. Epic disaster after an opening of 16-4. Man o Man. This final looked like Kentucky was giving up the ghost, but we have us a game now.

    Man, these missed free throws are liable to be the death of UK.

    Well, that makes for two championships Calipari has lost because his team can't shoot free throws.
