I wouldnít trust the box score to accurately capture the penalties that were assessed. Iíve found that those technical foul memos are frequently incorrect.

The only thing more insane than Underwoodís fanboy take is the fact that people on this forum genuinely believe that interaction with OíConnell happened.

I doubt that call gets O'Connell sent home. If he doesn't advance it will be for other reasons.

It's well known that the tournament is officiated more "by the book" than the regular season.

I've seen men's and HS officials (and I am one of them) let more misbehavior slide without a second T than what Mulkey demonstrated here.

I absolutely refuse to be the mask police in games I officiate (of course, I wonít work anywhere I have to officiate in a mask anymore). Itís bad enough that we have to enforce fashion police rules.
