I just took a good look at Thursday night’s Sacred Heart at Long Island University men’s BB box score.
Pioneers lost 103-91 in overtime.
To say that the Pioneers were victims of some “home cooking” would be an understatement.
Bet it tasted terrible.
For the game, Long Island went to the free throw line 39 times, making 28
Sacred Heart went to the free throw line 11 times, making all 11. That’s a 17-point difference.
Long Island was whistled for 12 fouls.
Sacred Heart was called for 27 fouls. That’s a 15-foul difference. Two players for SHU fouled out and two more had four fouls. Only one LIU player had four foules.
I’m sorry but I’m just not buying the Pioneers played that physical of a game.
The three referees, Moe, Larry and Curley, aka … Brian O’Connell, Donnie Eppley and Robert Barker, should be embarrassed for calling such a one-sided game.
