Duke vs St Johns - Bob Knight Comment

What did I just hear Bob Knight say?

Foul on Singler and Bob says – paraphrasing here, Ya know sometimes the call depends on the angle. Sometimes as a coach I think I have a better angle and the ref missed the call. But, other times the ref has a better angle than the coach and they’re right about the call. Like this case.

Turning over a new leaf? Nah!

Can you keep posting, please? I'm at the airport on my way to Chicago tonight and can't listen to the game.

37-26 Duke at half. Not a particularly well played game so far.......

Safe travels.

Ho hum.......

Duke won 76-69. Game wasn’t that close, but Duke went to the line a lot and shot poorly (four St Johns players fouled out).

Knightisms:

Players commit too many unnecessary fouls bailing shooters out of bad shots. Just stupid.

Travel called – and Mr. Knight says….refs are doing a much better job of calling these now as they had been letting them go for many yrs. (Is it something I said?)

During a real awkward skirmish for a loose ball on the floor, he made a reference that no foul in basketball is as game changing as a personal foul in football – 15 yards is demoralizing.

He told a classic Howard Cosell/Madison Square Garden story.

All in all, a tame game and a non-controversial Bob Knight with not much to say about the refs......tonight.

It was only because he liked the crew working the game and said so in the beginning. He's still same old Bob
