And Higgins and Burr just let a St. John's player step out of bounds with the ball with 1.7 seconds left and the clock ran out.

I normally don't get into this, but they just put the whistles away in the last minute. And the player stepping put of bounds put a cap on it.

The last part is the kicker for me. I can accept the no call on the over the back some days

It sure looked like the Rutgers player got hammered on that inbound pass, too.

St John's vs Rutgers(remarkably bad)

Oh my word.....Did anyone see this?

1) Pretty clear foul on St John's defender when Rutgers kid drove

2) Glaringly obvious over the back(St John's player fouling Rutgers player) right after that on the attempted rebound off of the missed St John's free throw.

3) On the final play, St John's intercepted the half court throw, traveled, then went out of bounds with at LEAST 1.6 on the clock...but he probably travled before that. How is there no whistle when a guy goes out of bounds right in front of an official?

I am not from the Northeast and have exactly no rooting interest in this game.

Yes that as well. I didn't have a good look at it with the camera angle

I liked the no call on point 1. It seemed the offensive player jumped into the defensive player looking for the contact.

"over the back?" WTH is that?

I can understand the rest, but why in the world is an official upset about a someone not calling "over the back?"

Correction - a no call on a suspected "push".

I hope. I am not a fan of Higgins or especially Burr. I respect them for their years and dedication to the game and officiating, but its hard for me to watch them. Especially the way Burr signals his visible counts and starts to walk up court before the ball is ever inbounded
