these guys have to go to the basket like a fullback doing a goal line dive. They allow so much contact on the body.

On that last one Hayward was fouled by up to 3 guys.

I can see the fould but why was the bucket counted? He took four steps. Doesn’t that amount to a travel? even with continuation i thought you still had a two step limit.

A couple of defensive lapses by Butler, they are going to have to fight through it to not let the game get away from them.

The athletes on duke’s roster are impressive, of course they get the creme de la creme of recruitment, and it shows.

I thought that was a fair call. Scheyer had his feet planted, even if he did ( ahem ) shift to his right a little, as the announcer noted.

My father used to talk about his highschool team having an enforcer. If the refs got flakey, the thug got out and took a couple guys out of the game before being ejected. Seemed to make the refs find their wistles and start calling fouls.

Just look to see who hires which refs and for how much during the regular season....It always tells the story.

Well, Butler in a one possession game, with 5 minutes to go, this is where they hoped to be.

Butler is still hanging in there. I hope the officials start calling things consistantly.

The refs better get the game under control before someone gets hurt. Danger of calling games too loosely at the beginning, then they have to start calling them later and the game tempo has been set for danger and their calls are inconsistant..

“Butler is still hanging in there. I hope the officials start calling things consistantly.”

5 minutes to go in an extremely physical game. How many fouls on Hayward?

Well it’s anybody’s game with 5 minutes left, and the foul trouble tally stands 4-4-3 for each team. This has been a great game.

You thought Butler ever had a chance?

It's Duke. The refs cheat for them every game.

no ticky tacky handcheck or body contact calls against Duke, too bad the same rules don’t apply to both sides of the court.

IMO, Butler is playing well, but they are extremely fortunate that the team that played WV on Saturday forgot to show up tonight. I am an NCSU fan, but Duke is probably my second favorite team because Coach K is such a great coach. I am sure he is wondering why his guys are taking so many stupid shots!

Duke has had the benefits of many referee induced turnovers.

From that angle, run a play where someone cuts to the basket- back door.
