I don't like players who fall down upon contact. That's crap. Man up and try to stop somebody yourself without relying on referees. If a guy comes into the lane like a bull in a china shop then yes, holding your ground while getting trucked is acceptable. But when some white kid slides over to draw a foul on a future first round draft pick, it's pretty easy to see what's going on. Duke is abusing the rule and the spirit of the rule. Have been for years. On twitter, writers who hate Calipari were taking up for his comment and giving him hell for backing off of them after the game.
Abusing the rule or taking advantage of the rule? UK plays out of control most of the time and part of that is because they are so young, don't get mad at Duke for taking advantage of someone being out of control that's smart basketball. Don't be mad at the "unathletic white guy" that plays the game smarter and gets the best of you. Duke is not going to out "athlete" UK so they have to play smarter. Last year UK was called for 59 charges while their opponents were only called for 14, why? Because they play so many freshmen, they play out of control and they don't know how to take a charge. Cal has been complaining for years about the block/charge call and will always have some excuse.
