Referees. The refs are absolutely brutal tonight. For both sides. Killing any and all rhythm and flow for the game. This hurts URI a lot more than GWU. URI is a team that does most of their scoring via jump shooting and few lay-ups/dunks and needs to be able to get into a flow and establish a rhythm to be effective on offense. GWU is different as their offense consists of banging around down low. GWU has scored 12 of their 31 points in the paint (compared to URI’s 2 points).
If the refs wake up and stop fucking around and calling every single bump, URI can get in a rhythm and maybe open this game up. Otherwise, this will be a close one coming down to the wire.
