Duke Just Won a Game on One of the Worst Calls you Will See

Officials and missed calls continue to be one of the biggest stories in college basketball this season and the Duke Blue Devils benefited from both…again.

Late in Duke’s win vs. Florida State, Matthew Hurt committed three violations on one play. However, Florida State was whistled for the foul.

Hurt held the Florida State player with both arms to prevent him from grabbing the rebound. After Hurt comes down with the rebound, he swings an elbow into the Florida State player. The official said the FSU player was in Hurt’s cylinder and called a foul.


Even if the foul calls were missed, Hurt actually traveled by falling to the ground. Instead, Duke shot two free throws and walked away with another win.

Had that been Kentucky or anyone else, we all know the play would’ve been reviewed and called a Flagrant 1 foul.

    Well that’s two games in a row the refs have given Duke.

    Uh, no. Hurt’s elbows didn’t touch Forrest. The FSU player behind Hurt hit Forest in the face:

    Granted, it wasn’t a foul on Forest. The foul was by the other FSU player, who pushed Hurt down and ten hit Forest in the face.
