Woahh nice find. Is anyone sending those numbers to the ncaa or to whoever controls college basketball to be reviewed?

Pretty interesting, and yet not surprising. I imagine better teams get more calls in favor of them often

In some ways it looks like the officials did more work than the players,

If knowing this I might have changed my bracket slectionss. Can u pick the referees to win it.

Out of the final 4 its odd to see Duke as the underdog of foul call favors

maltise falcon said...

nah Michigan state still has it worst. I hope they win it all

I'm for MSU to. They are so unxpected it would be a good year for them to win it all

The fouls are something to consider if your betting on the Final4 and champ games. These will work well

UK and Wisc will likely come down to foul shots and if that happens the officials will give more calls that favor UK

Kentucky won't need help from the refs. They got the championship in the bag !

1 day away from seeing if the referees will keep these numbers up. Go Badgers

I always saw Duke and a few other common ones who had all the pull with the officials but it looks like Kentucky has become bigger than all of them.

there's more a following for the final 4 games so I don't think fouls are going to be too one sided. It will be too obvious if they call things badly now
