Spokane: The best show in town

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

I might be the only one ot say this, but the refs in big time games rock. Not because they are necessarily good officials but because they are so dramatic.

Example: Down on NM's end, ball goes out of bounds on right side of key. Baseline official on left side of key runs over (blowing his whistle about seven times) kneels down as if the baseline is going to tell him who touched the ball last, then makes a very dramatic "RED! BALL!" gesture.

He is so just trying to get on TV.

Let's see ... Texas went about six possessions in a row without Durant touching the ball and score on one of them. Then Augustin drove and flipped the ball to Durant, who hit a 12-footer. Crazy, isn't it? If Texas wants to win this game -- and they're only up one with 7:22 to play, so they better get their act together -- Durant needs to touch the ball EVERY time. At the very least it will draw a double team and he can pass to someone else.

Meanwhile, Passos for NM St. has four dunks, all them embarrassing for the Longhorns.

Aggies just stole the ball ... Gibson fouled and on his way to the line ... 57-56 before the FTs.

NM St gets lead back. Throws a full court press at Longhorns and UT has to call a timeout because they picked up their dribble in the corner. You know, right where the trap was coming. 7:10 to go.
