      Unless the point of emphasis is removing Higgins from the list of officials, can't say it will have much impact.

      That's the stupidity of this annual dance. The NCAA committee on the games and officials comes out with these things, but they have no actual authority over the officials or the conferences except for the NCAA tourney, where they themselves continue to promote and advance officials who absolutely blatantly disregard their points of emphasis.

      Higgins' actions in the UNC game were blatant, yet they keep on using him.

      But the biggest joke of all is thinking that a bunch of guys who apparently have more job security and less job performance leverage than postal workers are going to give a dang about this stuff. They start doing it, the coaches complain, the leagues buckle, and the officials do what they want.

      It's enough to make this fan start to lose interest.

    I was so impressed by Horford last night. His hustle on the defensive end was the difference in that game imo.

    I've not watched the second half (yet) but the numbers suggest we did a *much* better job in the second half. Off the top of my head I seem to remember

    10 point wins over lightly regarded teams and thirty point wins over division two or three teams do nothing to excite. Nor do home losses against ranked
