Business Insider On Hart's Uncalled Foul On Jackson, End Of First Half of Carolina-Villanova

I'm really trying to resist the urge to complain more about the officiating, but even neutral parties from one end of the web to another are commenting on it.
   Of all the suspect and outright awful calls last night, here's the one that seemed most blatant to me, discussed at Business Insider oddly enough.
   Hart had already put Jackson in a blatant arm bar, tried to wrestle him to the ground, then, when he couldn't, flopped and looked at the ref in an over-the-top acting job aimed at convincing the ref that Jackson had thrown him to the floor. Then, right in front of the ref, he (Hart) walks up and starts shoving Jackson...and the ref starts giving Justin trouble about it! I've never seen anything like it, honestly...
   Then there was the blatant and uncalled foul at the end of the first half discussed in the article, leading to a 4-point swing in what turned out to be a 3-point game...
   Officiating is hard, and I expect it to be approximate...but it seemed unusually bad last night.
