Again just about every teams fans say the same thing. This game was nowhere near as unevenly called as some are saying. When a team is not as talented and has to play harder, more fouls occur. Simply comes from being more amped up to compensate for the talent you are going against.
Duke can simply take any one of our players one on one. Trying to stop the better player in matchups always has the less talented player picking up more fouls.
If you don't think Duke get's an officiating advantage then I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell ya'. It may or may not be subconscious from the refs,but they do get the calls. Like Thornton leaning into Green enough to move his pivot foot...then chuckling about it after the call was made. Come on!
