LOWELL GETS SHAFTED

This thread should be titled "Lowell Choked" right?
Lowell gave up a 12 point lead with 3 minutes to go, don't go blaming the officials.
Honestly, the behavior from most Lowell fans was downright childish all night, trying to act like some big shot gambinos givin the Soprano talk to the refs all night. Yall need to put down the canolis and chill out for a sec. If Lowell wasn't crying about the officials the whole second half, even when you were up 10 with two minutes and actually focused on the game, then Lowell might have won.
Listen, Cambridge people know their basketball. Lowell needs to get some of their people out of the mill more often. Cambridge was driving to the basket all game, that generally leads to fouls. You attack the whole game and the refs are gonna make some calls. Lowell wasn't attacking the hoop besides #44 who was beasting the paint, your big guy Welch played like a total stiff. He had about 5 inches on anyone on Cambridge except he treated the paint like he was allergic to it. If you Dirk Nowitzki thats one thing, but if you got size in highschool you better use it. Fact of the matter is, he wanted to shoot jumpshots while Cambridge wanted to attack the hoop.
That explains the foul discrepancy, the aggressor gets the calls and tonight Cambridge was the aggressor.
And if you want the ref to call a charge, then the kid has to actually take a charge. At least 4 times tonight Lowell had a guy in position to take a charge but the kid didn't have the stones to take it and slid to the side and got called for a block.
The whole scene from Lowell tonight was childish, from your student section (listen your not Duke, your not the attraction, watch the damn game, and yall showed great sportsmanship by turning your back on Cambridge when they were introduced) to the greaseballs who spend the $5 they usually spend on their nightly calzone to come to a highschool basketball and scream at officials.
