The Foul Against Marshall

As you can see, 34 is not even trying to go for the ball. He holds up his left hand, but it's a foot under the ball, and he's got no play at all. So he pushes Marshall in the ribs, extending his right arm and sending Kendall's upper body out, so he can't get his legs under him on the landing. Predictably, KM crashes to the floor.

As I've long said: this kind of thing has got to stop. Dean warned, just before his retirement, that the game was becoming too violent, and he was right.

That's the season right there.

Marshall is having surgery this morning to put a pin in his wrist. Good luck, man. We're all thinking about you.

No doubt a dirty foul.

Maybe in the the future we can just let UNC skip this whole tournament thing and just choose who is worthy to play them for the championship. That way they won't have to step on the court with anyone who might foul too hard, flop unnecessarily or shoot too many threes.

That's a damn fine idea, A.

I'm seriously going to look into that.
