Game completely changed on one of the worst charge calls I have ever seen. What should have been Zoubek's 5th, a 4 point lead, and an "And 1" with the chance to push it to 5 turned into an offensive foul, and a 1 pt lead for Duke after making a 3 point shot. Way to ruin a good game zebras and completely swing momentum in a game that should be decided by the 10 fellas in the uniforms.
How do you explain Baylor coming back and taking a 61-60 lead less than 60 seconds later? And Zoubek fouled out two minutes after that, after contributing nothing other than one defensive rebound.
Udoh spoke about the charge.
"I mean, it wasn't that big. I mean, you know, the ref made the call. We didn't get the stop. If we would have gotten the stop, it wouldn't have been as big."
All this crap about Duke advancing comes from a lot of things, but it's unfortunate that this team is getting a lot of crap thrown its way because it outplayed a tough Baylor team that failed to stop it. Hate all you want, but it's not going to change the fact we were the only 1-seed to reach the Final Four. And if you'd like to play the cynical card there as well, let me remind you that puh-lenty of people had Baylor beating us in what turned out to be a road game just minutes from Baylor's campus.
Oh and just in case you want to whine about out bracket.
After the first round game, where all Final Four teams played lesser opponents, the average RPI and SOS of their next three opponents:
DUKE: 15 RPI with 28 SOS
MSU: 18 RPI with 51 SOS
BUTLER: 23 RPI with 92 SOS
WVU: 29 RPI with 46 SOS
All of Duke's last three opponents are Top 20 in RPI.
Are we done here?
