There were some interesting calls.
In the first half of the Elite Eight matchup between the No. 1 North Carolina Tar Heels and the No. 2 Kentucky Wildcats, there were some interesting calls from the refs that UK head coach John Calipari didn’t think were all that fair.
UNC’s Kennedy Meeks appeared to get away with a few fouls, while Kentucky was being given a tight whistle (at least that’s how it seemed if you’re a Kentucky fan). Here was Calipari’s reaction to the officiating at one point during the half.
And there was also Kentucky’s Edrice Adebayo getting called for this over-the-back foul at the 8:20 mark in the first half.
And this last one had the Kentucky fans in FedExForum erupt in boos after a questionable foul that was called on Derek Willis.
