Laphonso Ellis on ESPN said the foul on Goodin was a good call, as it was a foul. X jumps MSU or Purdue tomorrow. Top 5 matchup with Nova looming. Fox needs to do a GameDay like ESPN. Perfect game for it.

glad I was able to get to Chris on that last score. Seniors need to step up the last few games but glad we have players like Scruggs, KK, Q and Marshall, Some nice rebounds from Gates
Not too many times when you win shooting 3-19 from 3.
4 guys scoring in double figures.
JP was one board short of the double double.

I feel bad for Elmore and Brando, I’m sure they are taking this one hard. AH, can see if MM has any parachute pants for sale? They were always to expensive for me.

seeing your wardrobe tells me all you buy is parachute pants. Not for the ballroom for sure
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Refs hardly call any fouls all game then 2 in last 5 seconds. I guess they realized they hadn't done enough to affect the outcome. Just glad it worked out for us but that's a tough way to lose at home if your Creighton.

Lot of guts to make the last call. To me it looked like the first guy actually made the foul. He was moving in. Most refs swallow the whistle and walk away. Making that call in front of 18000 took a lot of nerve. Gives me a bit more faith. (I think it was a make-up for the traveling called on O'Mara two possessions before. The replay in slow motion showed his left foot did not move.)

The big thing that came out of this win was the last cal/playl itself. Just as Mack did in the Arizona game when he called O'Mara's number instead of Tre's, he called Goodin's. The announcers were all talking about how to get it to Tre or JP. Mack does not always go with the obvious.
