College Basketball Handicapping: Calipari says refs are no longer calling enough fouls

01.21.2016     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Kentucky head coach John Calipari, the referees have reverted back to allowing too much physical play. This theory comes on the heels of UK's 75-70 loss at Auburn in which the Cats committed 25 fouls while the Tigers committed only 13. Auburn also nearly doubled up Kentucky from the line with 31 attempts to only 18. In five SEC games, Kentucky has committed 119 fouls vs. only 93 from the opposition. SEC foes have also shot 130 free throws to Kentucky's 111. That's a far cry from last season when UK shot on average seven more free throws per game that its opponents.


“We gotta go back to football practice,” Calipari said. “All this stuff about rules, like we’re not going to put hands on, not going to hip check – it’s done. They clearly didn’t have the stomach to continue it, so we’re just going to go back to like I did in 2013, where we just said, ‘Put on the football helmets and let’s go.’

“The games, they’re physical again. You drive and you get hip-checked, that’s an automatic foul. I’m not just saying this game. All the games I’m watching, the games are back to being like they were.”
