GREAT game by VT

VT's coach should have taken a Technical during this one. IMO
Congrats on a rock solid effort, Hokie.

Teams that slash get to the line more. It's pretty simple. Pretty sure State was in the bonus with 8 minutes to go in the second half.
And your complaint is ironic because the only reason VT even made it to overtime was because the refs missed a blatant illegal play by VT. Oh, and check out this foul on Howell. Care to explain to me how this is a foul on State? I'll save you the effort. You can't.

The referee's bailed State out? Did you tune out when VT ran an illegal play to send it into overtime?

Hokie, it is surprising to see such disparity in free throw attempts, 43-7. I had the game on DVR and watched the first half this morning. I did not see many obvious missed calls by the refs. To me the first half looked okay at least with regard to how the refs called it. There were a couple of badly missed calls like Green's travel, and S. Wood pushing the VT defender in the lane.
Perhaps the refs missed lots of fouls in the second half.

Huge difference in foul shots - home cooking saved the wolfers bacon.....no doubt!

Wow. They don't call it Orange County Remedial College for nothing, do they? If you had the reading comprehension skills of an actual human (rather than a lower-primate, UNC piece of trash), you would see that not only did I say NC State did not "play down" to VT, but I commended VT on playing an excellent game. NC State was hardly "bailed out" by the refs - that may be the most asinine statement I have ever read. Did you actually watch this game, or did you just check the box score? State earned every trip to the line, and actually should have gotten more.
Being a Tarhole, I don't expect you to have a very good memory (or decent cognitive skills of any kind), but I wouldn't be surprised if you remembered a UNC player named Tyler Hansbrough. If you don't recall, Tyler Hansbrough earned an enormous percentage of his points from the free-throw line, because he would get the ball down low and draw a foul going up with it. How is State being "bailed out by the refs" when our players employ the same tactic?

The Hokies will recruit some talent next season. We lose Erick Green. I hope our coach can find a few with his heart. I hate that Duke lost tonight. I surely didn't see this one happening.

It's a mad, mad, mad, mad thread...

^^^^^I only respond to the real people on here at this time of the night. My high school won last night. I really admire how VT never gave in nor did they give up. A few FT's could have helped my little ol team.
