Plus good coaching to leave in Albrecht who is hot and rest Burke who has 2 fouls.

The refs are “letting them play”... that’s for sure.

Of course, Lousville had won games from 15-17 points behind several times this season....so it’s not over...but Michigan looks fabulous at the moment.

At this level, 17 pts in an entire game is an excellent performance, and there's still 3 min left in the first half !

salvaging an NBA career is another thing altogether....

Did he have a career insurance policy? I know most top line college players do. Heck here in Indiana, even some high school kids have them.

I doubt he did, but they say this surgery will bring him back as good as ever....so this will delay, but not prevent, such a career....

Wow, they really are allowing them to “play”. Like that first shot Michigan took, you can see the Louiville player’s arm was draped on the guy’s arm while he was shooting, and no foul. It’s a lot easier to play a full court press when you are allowed to put your hand on the other players the whole time.

.. interesting that the Coward in Chief isn't there .. narcissists really don't like ridicule, and that booing the other night had to be excruciating to the maggot.

It was music to my ears, actually !

As long as they keep the calls equitable, tight or loose is ok, imho.

One of my problems in high school b.ball was bringin' too much football attitude to the court .. lol

Wonder if Albrecht will be back in or do they let McGary and Burke finish it off ?

I was just thinking football when the louisville guy tackled the shooter from the floor. Apparently that isn’t really a foul.

They have been getting a lot of help. I predicted Louisville would win it all with help from the whistles.

Loiusville actually got called for lots more fouls than Michigan. I think though that they committed even more, but because they got called for so many, I think the refs do back off some, because they just feel like they are calling too many on the team.

It’s kind of a strategy, if you have enough players I guess, you just keep fouling and fouling, and you get away with enough because they can’t call every one, and if it leads to turnovers, you make up for the easy baskets you give up at the free throw line.

Also, all that fouling tires out the other team. It’s hard enough to run for 40 minutes without a defender dragging your arm or pushing on you all the time.

And they are really quick, which helps a lot. But if you take just two of those turnovers, and call the clear fouls (like the one where they guy tackled the person with the ball), that might be an 8-point turnaround. And if not, there’s the perfect block at the end of the game called a foul, worth another 2 points and momentum.

The same thing happened with Wichita St.
First they are calling the game normal and Louisville falls behind. Then Louisville goes into their full court press, pushing and hacking and the refs call a few fouls but let most of them go and Louisville goes ahead. Towards the end Wichita St. has a final run, the refs are making questionable calls, and the rally falls short.

At the beginning of the championship game I predicted that Louisville would win with the help of the whistles (see post #19).
