That's funny since the second half of the game last year State was called for 14 fouls and Duke was called for 12, and keep in mind two of those State fouls were intentional in the last minute to stop the clock and hopefully get the ball back. I do agree to letting the teams play, the officials in the unc/Miami game last night let both teams play and it made for an enjoyable game to watch unlike a free throw shooting contest.
Right but what you aren't taking into account is that Duke basically hacked the crap out of our guys in the post while Seth Curry and Austin Rivers dribbled around 15 feet from the bucket the whole game and still drew fouls. The foul disparity shouldn't have even been close considering the style of play by both teams. But because Duke gets away with reaching against everyone and their guards shoulder into the defender to create contact 15 feet from the bucket (which technically isn't a foul on the defender)...the fouls were close.
Watch the game and you will see that Duke's "aggressive" style of defense on the perimeter will rarely get called for a reach in and their opponent will get called every time for the same style of play.
