It's not just the travels.
What really gets me is the contact in the lane. You literally never know if a foul will be called. Nick got clobbered today. No foul. Len was clearly fouled on our second to last possession. No call.
That's just the two most egregious. But it happens on literally every single possession. It's ridiculous.
Well, the first 17 minutes they called literally nothing. Then the floodgates opened on us.
The officials were awful the entire night. Howell and Leslie travelled numerous times and Howell got away with flops as well. The worst to me was the "foul" on Len when he nudged Leslie after trying to pump the crowd up. My god let them play
That was totally a foul. Len went out of his way to shoulder check Leslie. And it was awesome.
Looked like he got ball and followed through on the man from my seat in the upper level on the opposite end of the court, but whatevs. That play was awesome either way, Wells is just...violent. I was terrified he was going to break his arm when he hit the ground because he basically landed on his right shoulder.
This. Horrible officiating is the baseline state in the ACC, the only thing that is ever remarkable is when they do a good job of calling a game.
I thought the first half was called well, much better than any other half we've played in the ACC this year. Then Swofford made the call and "Calvin" was granted GOD status and we find ourselves with a 9 to 2 foul discrepancy at home.
It is like this every year.
It feels like the officials want to be a reason why the game is decided instead of letting the players decide it. They make over-exaggerated calls, run halfway down the court the other way to make a charge call, and just allow the emotion of the game to factor into their decisions way too often.
Sad, but the refs are calling it more and more like the NBA. The forearm to the back happens EVERY time any post player gets it. Not only that, they are allowing the defender to use force therefore pushing the post player off the block.
Don't even get me started about the continuation calls.
But yes the refs have been bad in most games I've watched this year.
