Props to Louisville...oh and that wasn't a foul on Burke fwiw
Not even close
Nope, but Michigan would've had 3 guys foul out if they called a legit game. McGary should've had five in the 1st half alone.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Refs were odd that is for sure. However congrats to Louisville, you could just see in the second half they wanted it more.

Yes we could have made more shots but that play was huge
Tough call at a tough time.
Louisville was getting easier buckets in the second half. And other than Burke Michigan went cold in the second half.
Great game though.
I just don't see how they even thought it was a foul? I could see it from a damn tv
No, but we can't blame the refs. We got killed on the boards in the second half. McGary being in foul trouble really hurt, but again I don't blame the officials. It's just how it played out.
It's what happens when a ref makes up his mind before the play.
No idea. It wasn't the only questionable call.
Louisville was doing the Texas two step with the ball after offensive rebounds. Looked like a lot of uncalled walking.
Michigan didn't rebound or defend well enough in the 2nd half though. That's how the game was lost.
Oh I'm not saying the refs gave them the game but that play was a momentum changer
Some frustrating calls, but they didn't decide the game. Louisville was the better team tonight and congratulations to them. Great game.
Good posts by the Michigan fans. The refs made many questionable calls (and non-calls) on both ends. Entertaining game. Michigan had me really worried they'd do the unthinkable...
Michigan got away with a bunch of fouls too. but that call on Burke was ridiculous. that ref should be fired.
Honestly, I can't blame the refs at all - there were numerous bad calls on both sides, and it all evened out. Louisville just wanted it more, and their shots were falling every time down the court in the second half. Michigan's outside game was non-existant in the second half, and there were a lot of dumb turnovers. Sucks, but it is what it is. Nobody expected this Michigan team to even make it out of the Sweet 16, so I can't complain too much about the result. Michigan basketball has a bright future, even without Trey Burke.
The only foul I'm pissed about is the one where Hancock fouled a UM player, but they gave the foul to some dude who wasn't even involved in the play.
If they had given that foul to Hancock, that would've been his 4th and Pitino would have taken him out. But since he didn't get the foul, he got to stay in and bomb some 3s.
True officials were bad all night
