Anyone watch the Illini play Washington? I cannot remember ever seeing such a lopsided game in terms of fouls called. Unbelievable. Still, the Illini could and should have won. But I cannot help but express my disbelief that Illinois shot 2 free throws in the second half. Washington lived at the line.
I didn't believe Illinois would win it all. I have them losing in the final four, and that was a big stretch even for my biased opinions. But they will go home knowing that a somewhat fairly called game would have probably meant playing in the regionals. I'm looking forward to seeing who (if anyone) will speak out about this terrible officiating.
