Even tho Oregon made their share of mistakes, there were a few glaring calls/non-calls by the officials late in the game that helped NC hold my Ducks off. Some suggest Meeks pushed off on that last FT miss...maybe, but that's not what I mean. Brooks got his 5th foul on what should have been a jump ball. Josh Jackson is hit by the ball while standing out of bounds and they call jump ball. Ducks drive not once but twice and get knocked down while not getting a foul call.....any one of those called correctly and maybe the Ducks win.
But when you lose by one, a lot of plays can be 'the one' that cost you....like launching too many contested threes...or not boxing out on FTs.
Still proud they got that close to the Natty, especially given they didn't just lose Boucher, they lost him 1 game before the tournament and had to adjust that quickly to not having such an impactful big.
Jordan Bell is gonna look great in a Blazer uni
