Good first half. Udeh’s free throw shooting is Ugdeh. Bad call on Cork. That was a block. Would nice if some of those balls rolling around the rim would drop in. Let’s win the second half.

The goaltending by Cork was a great reactive block while the ball was on the way up. Don’t make that call if it is unclear to you. At full speed, it looked like a great block, and the replay confirmed it. So just robbed someone of a great play.

That officials was way too sure of himself with that emphatic call he made for it to not even really be a goal tending.
