I agree about the obvious foul on Kelly that wasn't called...why aren't these types of fouls being called at the end of tight games? this is a question that has bothered me for a while.Originally posted by <b>NU Hoop
In case you didn't notice, these weren't the "Typical" AE Refs. Gotta give the AE some credit here in bringing in pretty good refs who were - consistent, until the last NU possession.
Watch the replay again, and if you read the Boston Globe article this morning, both the game report and Dan Shaughnessy's column indicate Kelly was held and Barea was bumped.
I'd like to think that I'm an objective observer and I'm going to give my humble opinion. I saw the Vermont player get tripled teamed and get thrown to the floor. Hardly what I'd call "ticky tack". I didn't watch the replay to see if UVM fouled on that last play, but they probably did because virtually every play has a foul with all the grabbing, hand checking, shirt holding, bumping, etc., involved with today's game.Originally posted by <b>pipnu</b>!
As for the Kelly non-call at the end ... like I said earlier, I'd be fine with that if they hadn't called a foul on NU at the other end to give Vermont free throws. It was a held ball situation and they somehow came out of that with a foul. Ticky tack at best, then the game is on the line at the other end and anything short of murder was going to be allowed. It's not right.
