    ProTip for lil' Chrissy-poo:

    Don't go "charging on to the court" to try and intimidate the RAY-UFFFS like Kiwi taught you to do, and get T'd up....and maybe your team would have had a better chance to win.

    Typical dookie...always blaming someone else for their FAILURES.

    “You guys saw it. I mean, it would have been a three-point game. We had all the momentum. The guy puts his hand through the rim. It’s a very easy call, in my opinion. But it’s an honest mistake. Referees are human beings. They’re here for a reason, because they’re outstanding officials. They made the calls, we have to live with them. In my heart, do I think if we get that call and cut it to three, we have a great chance to win? Yes, I believe we had a great chance to win if the correct call was made.”

    “If I see a guy from another team put his hand through the rim and block a shot going through the basket, I’m going to react to it if the play isn’t called. I’m a human being, too. I think all of you would.

    “They made the calls. It is what it is what it is. They issued a statement. I appreciate the apology. It makes me feel great.”

    Collins sighed and thanked the NCAA for what he considered to be an apology for the missed call, which — had it been made correctly — would have cut Gonzaga’s lead to 63-60. Instead, Collins charged onto the floor at the officials, earning a technical foul. Just like that, Nigel Williams-Goss made two free throws to expand the lead to seven points and pretty much end several minutes of momentum turning in favor of Northwestern.

    “I don’t know what all that means,” Collins said of the NCAA’s statement. “All I know is I’m flying home. But it’s nice. Thank you for the statement. Appreciate it. It should have been a three-point game.

    Not really considering that even if Meeks wasn't able to tip it in UNC still wins by 5. If Berry was called for a foul and Arkansas was able to convert on both free throws UNC would have still won by 3. Either way UNC would have still won no matter what happened with this call.

    Yep.... ALL the big publications are sounding off about the pansies CHEATING.

    Everyone KNEW they were CHEATERS before this weekend, but clearly the game on Sunday SOLIDIFIED that REALITY in the minds of MOST!!!!

    They canNOT win without cheating.

    Arkansas should be proud, though. They played their hearts out and they took the number one seed in their region to the brink. However, in the end, the Razorbacks showed their inexperience on the big stage while the Tar Heels showed their experience. But North Carolina got some help from the refs to do so.

    The North Carolina Tar Heels beat the Arkansas Razorbacks to advance to the Sweet 16. But did they benefit from some home cooking?


    .
    .

    This is an inexcusable no call. The defender clearly has his feet set but Tar Heels forward Isaiah Hicks plowed through him. It appears Arkansas has become a victim of some home cooking in Greenville, which is close to UNC.

    It’s usually stupid to blame the refs for costing a team a win. However, in this case, the referees made a difference in the game. That’s something, as a fan, you never want to see. Razorbacks fans and players should be livid about the no call. Of course, North Carolina shut out Arkansas over the final three minutes, which is why they won. But all the momentum shifted to the Tar Heels after Hicks’ controversial basket.
