    John Higgins

    I've been saying this for 5+ years, but it showed again tonight. John Higgins crew has always been the most inconsistent crew in college basketball. I'm not saying they are the reason we lost at all, but damn call the game consistently. Tight-loose, I don't care, but keep it consistent. The refs were horrible tonight both ways. Missouri is a hell of a team and we played them to the wire, but it was a pity the game couldn't have been officiated well.

    We hack Ratliffe and the next time down the court someone barely grazes Royce and they call a foul? Really?

    Scott gets molested and it's clean, Dixon drives completely out of control to the basket and gets bumped and it's a foul. Really?

    Great game Clones, we were right there.

    Re: John Higgins

    SC was getting ******* hacked all game. On the other end they were getting calls just for driving recklessly into the lane.

    The sequence that really really bugged me was Royce getting called for that outrageous charge (he made the layup). Immediately on the next possession their PG just charged into the direct middle of the lane completely out of control, loses the ball, and gets a foul called and Mizzou scores 2.

    95% of people hate refs regardless of conference or sport.

    The other 5% are refs themselves or blind.

    You need to keep going in that sequence. After the charge, instead of being up 54-47 and going to the line, they get that ridiculous bail out call after traveling (of course they called Ejim for a travel later in the game on the same type of play) and score, then Scotty gets completely hacked on a drive to the hoop - no call, and then we miss a shot and Missouri scores. Instead of being potentially up 9 or more, it is a 1 point game. Huge swing in momentum at that time. Since Royce picked up a 3rd foul shortly thereafter, I think that is why he became less aggressive going to the hoop for fear of another ridiculous foul.

    Otherwise, I really liked how we played and it will be interesting to see how many bruises Scotty has on his arms by Saturday.

    NCAA officiating has really been terrible this year--especially in the Big 12.

    Re: John Higgins

    Actually not THAAAAT bad. I was disappointed in Scotty today and all of the crying for a foul. He was forcing it big time today

    Re: John Higgins

    I think the 2 that stand out most to me are the 2 calls on Babb to start the half. Very weak calls considering they were hand checking all game with no calls.

    There's no such thing as a crew in college basketball.

    Awful. Just awful. This crew is always bad. Conference really needs to do something about it.

    John Higgins calls a technical foul on this post.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    Yeah really took Babb out of the game after that. The charge calls were bad. Scotty got fouled a couple times too.

    We got away with one on Ratliff, that I remember too.

    Easier to remember the ones that went against us.

    We lose by 6 with Mizzou shooting 14 more free throws than us (making 8 more than us). Officiating was 100% the reason we lost.

    Re: John Higgins

    I'm fine with the foul calls, not so much with the no calls on the travels.
