The failure of the Ref to call the charge and travel near the end of the game, by NC sealed the Razorbacks fate. If he had made that call as he should have, the outcome of the game probably would have been different. It was a great game however and the Razorbacks played really well.

He could have called Kingsley for a blocking foul. He chose to keep the whistle in his pocket.

Looks like they took a page out of the football teams last two games in the second half. Just hope Kentucky doesn't win it all.
