For those of you who watched the game on ESPN+ last night, was there any sound? I was at the game and trying to watch the replay and there is no sound at all.

The game threads seem a little slow so far this season. I figured there would be more posts considering the season we are having.

Just watched the game again. Refs weren’t as bad as they were in person. But they did have a few bad calls on against us. KJ would have ended with 15pts and 14 rebounds had they counted that tip. He was in the air when the foul occurred so I have no idea how it didn’t count. Also we only got about 8.5 seconds on the 10 second call. Ball was in front court in the hand of a player with 20 seconds clearly on the shot clock.

Yea I went back and watched it too. The 10 second call really wasn't even that close. Also, at least two of the fouls called on Mayo weren't really close to being fouls, but I think he got away with at least two offensive fouls so I guess it evened out. I don't think this game was as bad as most OVC games, but I still say that these refs just aren't used to the speed of the D1 games. They anticipate fouls instead of waiting to call what they see.

I am with the group here and have been incredibly impressed with KJ and how far he has come this season. This is a kid that was not seeing the floor at the beginning of the year and is now a game changer. I pulled up his game logs on espn to look at season totals and WOW! He is shooting 76% from the field AND from the free throw line for the season. To say that he is the best freshman big we have had since Aska is clear to me, but now I am beginning to wonder what his ceiling really is? I mean multiple time OVC first team player? Player of the year? I may be getting ahead of myself because he is getting great looks because of Ja's passes and the way Ja draws the defense to him, but we could have a really special big man on our hands.

Nice video from WPSD on this week's Racer Rewind, using a split screen to show The Voice making the calls. I'm still pretty shocked the Shaq block to Morant behind the back pass back to Shaq for the slam didn't make SportsCenter top 10.

I was trying to remember, have we seen a visiting team who was on the losing end dribble away the final 25 seconds, not making any attempt to score? I've seen teams do it for a handful of seconds, but never what Eastern did Saturday night.

I thought the roof was going to come off the BANK that last 25 seconds. I don't know if EKU knew what hit them there at the end and they were just ready to get out of there. Can anyone remember it being louder than that last 25 seconds. Maybe the Saint Mary game with Dicky V?
