Need to rewatch some of these second half calls when I get home. Not sure what they look like on TV but from my seats the officiating has been terrible. Like terrible. From almost no calls in the first half to blind calls in the second half. It's probably just my purple glasses blocking the views but damn.

The refs didn't make the team lose, being 3-15 from 3 and 10-16 from the line did, but without some terrible officiating it would have been much closer. I missed being able to yell at refs with covid. With a certain someone in Florida and not able to be the loudest in the gym we all need to pick up our ref bashing game.

I know they were working hard on defense, but having only 4 pts after ten minutes was rather scary to me. Especially at home, where you are playing with your own rims and backgrounds. Still a work in progress, but as many have said, they desperately need a PG. Our opponents are using rapid and crisp passing to create openings, where we are using isolations or drive and dish. Let's see where all of this goes as the season moves on.

Last charge was a BS call....

Watched the replay when I got home. Absolutely was a charge and Ceruti got elbowed to boot after being bowled over. Wyland overheard the ref say Ceruti's foot was on the charge line. Well if so then it is NOT a defensive foul and NO shots should have been awarded. What are we now in the fifth year of the stupid arc rule and ref's still cannot get it right. Unless the rule has been changed or modified {and I do not remember reading a modification}; but the rule as orginated specifically stated a charge within the arc is NOT automatically a defensive foul. If a legitimate charge cannot be called because it is taken in the arc then it becomes a NO CALL. Any experts out there; know if the rule has been changed???????? Seems it is called wrong pretty much every single time???????? As I understand the rule, pretty simple if a play would have been a legit charge outside the arc, is taken inside the arc NO DEFENSIVE FOUL AND NO SHOTS should be awarded.

ps the rule was initiated to improve scoring inside, reduce ruff stuff underneath, and cut down on the reliance of 3's. IMHO it has failed in all aspects and all arc's should be immediately wiped off all basketball floors.

That was def a brutal call. Albany hurt themselves missing all those free throws. Defense showed up big time especially when they couldn’t buy a bucket in the first half. It’s a long season and the schedule is just going to get harder. By conference play I feel confident we’ll see a solid team out there if we can just have some sort of respectable point guard play.
