Anyone else watch the Xavier game. The referees are atrocious. Xavier took a shot as the 30 second clock was expiring, and it missed the rim by at least six inches. The horn sounded and everyone paused but the refs didn't do anything, so O'Meara laid it in. Turgeon went nuts, but it's not terrible. Twice, Blueitt drove to the basket and got pushed out of the lane with no call. Just now, Maryland stole the ball, and as they were going to the basket, the guard picked up his dribble at the top of the key, took 3.5 steps and was blocked cleanly from behind. They called a foul on X.
I am really happy watching other Big East schools carry the torch. I feel excited about next season and the more that dudes want to play in the Big East, the better off our program will be. That is also why I never understand rooting for URI vs Big East. What sounds more likely: "I want to play at PC and be part of the Big East!" OR "I want to go to PC and be part of Rhode Island basketball!"?
