As a Zags fan that performance was pathetic. They looked scared to death out there. Strawther was a complete bum the past 2 games making dumb decision after dumb decision. And the refs missed a few crucial calls down the stretch (the missed trip, the step out of bounds, multiple bad calls on Holmgren).

Disappointed is an understatement..

Holmgren got a terrible whistle...

He got the Theis treatment lol. But the 1st 10 minutes of the game i could tell how it was gonna be. They were making bad plays and just looked tight.

Now its up to Prov to give me something to root for. Hoping they can come up big against Kansas

It was really noticeable. Refs making some money on the side....

Disgusting. The 3rd foul on Holmgren wasn't so bad although it could be called an offensive. I would have been fine with a no call on the 4th foul. The last foul was despicable, that ref can take a hike.

It's rough when you see a player out there trying to play clean physical defense when the offensive players have clearly been coached to barrel into him to try to draw the whistle. Should have been more no calls/offensive fouls. Also that might be the worst out of bounds miss I've seen in years.

It was either negligent or shady...
There have been some incredibly bad decisions by NCAA refs recently.

They straight out went after Holmgren.

Can you explain why the Zags coach didn’t feature Holmgren more on offense? Dude shot over 60% from the field and 39% from 3pt. He finished the season 3rd in total shot attempts and was only 9 ahead of Strawther. Timme attempted 396 field goals to Holmgren’s 280. Chet was also 4th on the team in 3pt shot attempts, even though he had the second highest percentage of makes from deep.

Honestly Mark Few has been 2020 Brad Stevens all year. Hes let the wings and guards take some straight up terrible shots all year long and hasnt lit into their behinds about it. Late in the season they lost on the road to St Marys and it was just brick after brick being thrown up by the likes of Nimrod and Strawther while Timme and Holmgren each were in single figure FGA. Which makes no sense when they are probably the best frontcourt duo in the nation, youd figure they would feature them.

Same thing with the scare against Memphis, they almost let Strawther shoot them out of the game until Timme went super saiyan in the 2nd half and Nimrod hit some clutch free throws. Round 1 against GA st is how they shouldve played every single game, get the ball in the post to either Timme or Holmgren and get the heck out the way lol.

Gotta say im happy to see so many people complaining about the refs(especially the media) because i didnt want to feel like the usual extreme homer doing it myself LOL. Friends always accuse me of blaming losses on the refs but i tried not to because they also didnt play well but the 2nd half felt like it was 8 on 5 out there

The refereeing this tourney has been atrocious and lacking any resemblance of consistency.

I know we crap on NBA refs a lot but its almost night & day here.

Incredible defense

At some point you have to blame the performance on the court on the players on the court. Every loss is not the coach's fault and every win isn't because of the players.

Valiant effort by PC. A little better offense in the 1st half and its a different game. I still cant believe St. Peters. What a run by them dudes
