UConn and Baylor fought till the very finish for the possibility to advance to the Last 4 of the ladies’s NCAA Event on Monday night time, with the Huskies coming out on top, 69-67. It was intense, and will probably be remembered for the no-call on UConn on the finish of regulation that prevented Baylor from getting an opportunity to hit the free throw line and probably tie or win the sport.
From LeBron James to the common viewers at residence, many had points with a foul not being known as with the sport on the road.
Here is a take a look at the play:
UConn head coach Geno Auriemma believes that moments like this are usually not new to sports activities. To him, it is really “the character of sports activities.”
Here is what he mentioned concerning the play in query after the sport:
“It’s what it’s … you wish to return and test each single name all through the whole recreation after which add all of them up? You do not. That is the character of sports activities … we in all probability fouled quite a lot of occasions throughout the recreation and did not get known as for it. They in all probability fouled quite a lot of occasions throughout the recreation and did not get known as for it … I imply, you possibly can travel the entire thing. The underside line is the officers did what they’re gonna do. I am not gonna sit right here and apologize for it.”
After listening to that James tweeted about it being a foul, Auriemma laughed and sarcastically responded, “I do not suppose LeBron James’ ever gained a recreation by a nasty name on the officers, do you suppose?”
Auriemma then put it in perspective, saying gamers won’t ever consider a name after a recreation and hand the sport over due to a name.
“I in all probability doubt that in [James’] profession he gained a recreation and determined to offer it again as a result of he checked out it and went ‘that was a foul,'” Auriemma mentioned.
With the decision moving into UConn’s favor, the ladies’s basketball staff is within the Last 4 for the thirteenth consecutive event.
