So frustrated! I haven’t deleted the DVR recording yet and every time I watch the last 3 seconds again, I can barely reach four seconds. Actually, Texas should have not put itself in the position of having to win on the last shot ~ at the buzzer. That does not offsets the poor officiating late in the game. That five second inbound call was BS. Not only had five seconds not expired, but Texas was calling a time out which was ultimately ignored by the head ref. The referee admits, “I had to decide if it was five seconds or a timeout and I decided five seconds.” If you are “deciding” anything like this in an extremely important game, you are failing to do your job as well as should be expected. Anyone who did not see a foul on that last Texas shot does not know basketball rules. Take nothing away from Arizona … they played well enough to win, which they did.
There should be no excuse for results like this when you have the talent that Texas has. I guess it’s not that big of a surprise considering how UT struggled so much against Oakland on Friday.
