It was a game with incredible talent on both sides of the floor.  But
the officiating was way below the level you'd like to see for a game
like this.  There were a number of just flat-out missed calls, several
of which created a real swing in the game.  The first was the bogus
call on Burke which resulted in #2 on him and 15 minutes on the bench
in the first half.  The worst was the 4th foul on Hancock, which was
inexplicably given to another Louisville player.  He stays in, and 30
seconds later draws #4 on McGary.  McGary to the bench, and Hancock
proceeds to score 10 more points.  The 4th foul on Burke-- a clean
block-- also played a big role at the end, when he couldn't foul and
precious seconds ran off.

Like most of the top defensive teams in CBB, Louisville plays very
aggressively.  It creates a challenge for officials-- they can't call
everything.  But when you run up behind a player who's dribbling and
reach in, it's really hard to do that cleanly.  Louisville got called
for the foul on that play maybe 10% of the time

I'd probably say it's just you with those "I have three units on
Michigan" glasses you're wearing, but seriously, if I was somewhere
where I could put some money down and could get Michigan at +160, I
would have put some reasonably serious cash on them as well.

but your coach has to take the blame for that one.....him sitting burke for 14 minutes was inexcusable imo.  You dont do that with 2 fouls.

That's a thing coaches do far too often imo.  The point of sitting someone is so that they don't foul out right, and *miss* time due to fouls right? Well guess what...when you sit your best player for 14 minutes, you are GUARANTEEING that that players fouls are costing your team bigtime....whereas if you just play them regularly you may get their full value.  Or you may not if they keep fouling.

Uconn's head coach did the same thing a decade or so ago in a national semi game.  They were clearly the best team imo, but because he sat his best player for over 15 minutes in the first half with 2 fouls, duke built a nice lead and if one of the last 4-5 possessions had gone their way duke would have stolen a victory because the uconn coach was overly conservative with his best player.
