Big East: No, son, you really shot it that badly on your own.

By Jerry Palm - March 07, 2007

When I reffed, that's what I used to say to kids who would look at me and give me the tipped ball signal after a particularly lousy shot missed everything. Scottie Reynolds just did that to the ref here when he missed everything from about 21 feet. The ref just looked at him, smiled and shook his head.

In a less auspicious moment for the refs, a loose ball just hit DePaul's Kevin Butler in three places, including his face, before flying out of bounds and none of the refs saw it, so they gave it back to the Blue Demons. I wonder if they could check Butler's face for a dimple pattern, like they check ball marks in tennis. Nah, that probably wouldn't work.

Sammy Mejia of DePaul just scored his first points of the half, but Nova still has that persisitent five point lead at the last timeout. Maybe now we'll see that our-season-is-on-the-line intensity out of DePaul that has been missing so far.
