There is no vemon or vitriol in saying that NC State was given the Old Spice title game by a last-second foul call in Orlando on Sunday. The fact is that in what seemed like a great finish to a well-played game, longtime official Jim Burr was in perfect position to call a foul and he did not. Instead, the official on the baseline anticipated the foul and frankly, he blew it. While it is absolutely fair to say the call was wrong, it is also fair to say that officials need time to round into mid-season form. The more hoops I watch, the more it seems like positioning and anticipating a call lead to bad calls far more than malice.
