    Looks like game before ours on ESPN might run long

    45 minutes to our tip-off and the St Johns vs Villanova game just started it's 2nd half. Hopefully their 2nd half goes quick.

    They will set our game to 1:05 or 1:10 if they need too

    Is it just me or are games running longer recently? The Texas/Kansas St. game lasted over 2 1/2 hours. This game will run about 2 1/4 hours.

    No they are. More fouling, replay reviews, and FG % isn't as high as it use to be so there are more stop and starts in the action.

    At the rate this game is going, we will miss half of the first half of our game.

    Yep, probably 20 minutes or so to tip-off and still 10:30 minutes left in this game. Big East basketball there will be a lot of fouling down the stretch too.

    Nova looks like crap.
    Seriously, I've never seen so many fouls in my life.

    The refs need to do what I did when I was running the clock for Intramural basketball. Quickly stop the clock and subtract one minute while no one is looking.

    Re: Looks like game before ours on ESPN might run long

    This is one of the reasons I hate playing on ESPN. Seems like we always get screwed by the early game or they do something insanely stupid like switch to the KU game in the middle of our game against Duke.

    Not to mention we never win on ESPN.

    I hate ESPN.
