Admitting is the first step to recovery.

The way Wright was complaining, I see a make up call coming soon.

So far this is an enjoyable game to watch. I like where Mayer is at today, also.

great game between two well coached teams so far

Great feed by Mayer to TC. Hopefully that gets him going because he's playing a foot shorter than he is once again so far.

Fun first half that resembled a second weekend game with style of play. Good stuff.

Over/under on how many times the commentators tell us that Freddie came from a D3 school
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Oh come on! Stick your whistle in you pocket for ****s sake. Great. That means we're in for refball in the second half too.

What a bs foul.
rudylaw

I can totally see one of our guys getting that same call against Nova.
rudylaw

They just called Freddie for a push now? What a joke.

Well, that was an actual foul. Really dumb close to a great half.
CTbruin

Horrible officiating

Wright owns the refs
Johnny Bear

I get allowing a player to come down after a shot, but what latitude does the shooter have to jump into a defender? Sure looked like to me the Nova player jumped into Teague.

Also that reminded me of Auburn in last year's final four.

Really nice showing so far. Hope we can pull it out but we are on track for a fun year. So much Baylor awesomeness this weekend.

Commentators at half time were very complimentary of Baylor
Johnny Bear

They should be. It's a great game so far in spite of that silly call at the end of the half.

Then maybe try Zoloft

Am I seeing things or did they just reverse that call to Freddie?
rudylaw

Cute when Jay complains on the few calls we're gifted.
BaylorOkie

I couldn't tell.

Davion is straight going for the jugular tonight. Love how there's no indecisiveness in his decisions. Let's get MM back out there after the U16.

No foul on TC? OK then. Completely mugged.
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Imagine if the calls were even tonight? 6-8 point lead probably. Kids are scared to play defense now too for fear of a call.

Good grief
