No Joel Brown tonight. UW without their backup center.
Refs calling ticky-tack fouls on Cal, and letting UW bang...this is rather inequitable.
In a game with two very evenly matched teams, a 2:1 foul disparity where the home team makes more than 3x as many FTs as the visiting team even attempts is going to be a talking point.
Yes, the Bears were careless with the ball at times and struggled with the length of the matchup zone...but that type of inequity should raise some eyebrows, and the flagrant 1 on KK was laughable.
Just back from the game and that was awful. While it was hard to see Cal not have a consistent attack against the zone, the final numbers indicate we outplayed them aside from the free throw line. Live, at the game, it was so obvious we were getting called for ticky tack fouls and UW wasn't. But why didn't we keep playing the outside/inside game in the 2nd half? Why didn't Lars get more time and points? Fox was furious at the refs for the entire second half. At every time out he was cornering one of them with complaints. But as right as he may have been, we also lost because we didn't have a plan of attack. UW scored so many points off a basic pick and roll or drive and dish play. We never did that. Yikes.
Lars scoring and defending
UW gets their first defensive foul, and then refs call another ticky tak foul on Celestine
That's a DOGSCHITT call...LT going for a free ball on the alley-oop.....no body contact.
That is ONLY called in the Pac 12.
Typical awful P12 officiating...7 fouls called in the entire 1H, then 7 in a minute of play in the 2H...it's why the conferences officials are an embarrassment.
And it's a P12 edict...these same officials ref other conference's games and those fouls aren't routinely called like they are in the P12.
Kuany with a TO again...he can't play v this UW team. Sit his a$$ down, Fox...he can't handle the matchup zone.
Lars with 2...now 3 buckets...not bad!
That's all this team needs from LT...
I look at a guy like this Roberts kid on UW and wonder how ANYONE can guard him...looks like a beast.
I don't understand why Foreman is in the dog house with a short leash. I'd prefer he had more minutes than Brown or Hyder. However, I did like the bigger line up with Shephard at PG, Alajiki & Celestine. Celestine plays under control, doesn't tend to rush it & has a nice shot!
How does UW with their aggressive defense have zero defensive fouls in an entire half (yet called a ticky tak foul on Kelly)
Well, hog my hooter....Alajiki triggers a huge run.
Impressive turnaround, fellas, with next to nothing from AK22.
Nice work, boys. Nice work.
OMG. That basket!!!
Celestine is GOOOOOOD...so smooth
That was frustrating and disappointing
You can’t be in a players cylinder like the announcers are saying
Turning this game off. That's a focking joke.
Shepherd hurting them.
IF Cal doesn't turn the ball over, they win this game. TOs kill them v UW.
Kuany is maddening!!!
Please give Marsalis minutes over Jared Hyder
Turn overs somehow even before Lars charge
Alajiki will make and impact in 3...2....1
Kuany needs to be stronger with the ball. JFC Fox, get Alajiki in there.
UW is jumping the passing lanes and trapping
Classic Syracuse zone
Unfortunately it’s working
C'mon Lars. Gotta be better than that. Boo
Sam F-ing ALAJIKI....ALL DAY LONG
Kid should be starting over Kuany & playing 20+ mpg
Not good start
Not having brown is huge problem
Who the F is gonna guard Roberts? Kid looks huge.
