I really don't want to watch this UAB/Tucky game although UK is having trouble early on.

I gotta get DirecTV, this sucks.

Granted, I didn't see 38 minutes of the game, but NCSU only made 8 trips to the foul line. Seems kind of odd to me.
To be honest, the free throws were about equal until NCSU gave them the 6 FT's on the two blatant 3-point fouls, plus the intentional. If NCSU had handled their business, they would have easily had more FT's once they got to the final minute with a lead.

As for the intentional foul - I thought the call was legit, both at real time and in the replay, but that's just my opinion. Not sure how much leeway the refs have if no attempt is made on the ball whatsoever??

Melvin didn't have an opportunity to make a play on the ball because the guy ran right into him. Clearly a foul on Melvin since he did not have position, but definitely not flagrant, and the refs certainly have latitude to pretty much call whatever they want.

Fair enough. Like I said, I thought it was legit due to the right hand pulling back on the guy's shoulder - but I have seen worse let go.

I hate CBS. I'm a Pitt fan and they've showed absolutely zero coverage so far, through a game and a half. Not even video updates. Pitt seems to be struggling to make points. Anyone care to fill me in on what's been going on with them?

As I type this, they show an update.

For the game it was 117, so it was probably 58 or so.

As a fellow Pitt fan, I feel your pain. I guess I can understand why CBS wouldn't show much though. Pitt games are pretty boring unless you're a Pitt fan. Lots of defense, along with lot of misses on the offensive end is not very entertaining to the casual fan.

I thought about throwing a little bit on UAB +475 for the heck of it. Wish I had.

I took 5 moneylines today, hoping to hit 2 to make money:

Xavier, Vandy, Pacific, BC, and UAB. 2-1 so far, with the biggest one looking good so far

they didn't want to use PAC because they didn't want to be confused with the PAC 10, that's never good
