The Bills actually grabbed a 1-point lead once or twice.

Twice however they climb back on being down 4 or 5 you are up more than just 1

Dayton is in trouble come tourney time.

Those refs will actually call fouls on Toppin, Especially moving screens.

They are double screwed next year when they play the Bills. 
Im already calling a Bills season sweep with two beat downs.

Yeah...absolutely no mercy on these clowns next year. I'm glad Crutcher will be around to see it, too.

No argument here.  However, between Dayton and the officials, there would always be just enough to keep the Bills at bay.  Didn't the Bills have a double-digit lead against the Flyers at Chaifetz?

13 before the run of 3 balls.

We shot the same percentage at these guys, hit as many 3s as these guys and outrebounded them by 6.  But of course the refs sent them to the line 27 times to our 16.  And like was pointed out earlier, Obi "Hip Check" Toppin ended the game with zero fouls.  Our point guard was manhandled.  In a fairly officiated game, we win by 4-5 points.

Perkins layup at the end of the game was a very good representation of how this game went

Also, all 5th player fouls should be reviewed

Very good game by the entire team today on the road against a top 10 team. Out shot and out rebounded Dayton. The difference was 11 F/T attempts and 7 turnovers. 

Especially good game by Goodwin despite his "usual mistakes"

I agree. I'm just saying just cause Perkins has some good games closing doesn't mean Goodwin can't do the same. They both have to be a threat if we are going to reach out potential. Sorry Just sour after that game. Wanted that

Yeah this was another tough one to take.  The biggest reason we lost is the turnover margin.  Even though I think I’m used to the Ft% and the amount of shots we miss within 2-3 feet of the basket, on games like this it drives me crazy.

Speaking of Dayton and illegal screens...

Watching Memphis v. USF and they're calling much less egregious moving screens against ol' waste of space former sweater vest Brian Gregory's USF.

If they call those the way they should have, Toppin has 3 fouls, Dayton has 9 total turnovers, and Bills win.

The Has foul was obviously on Perkins. 

It didn't matter they were going to get Has regardless.

I can take games like this, I can’t take games like Davidson and Duquesne

I really hope we get these guys In the A-10 tourney, but we could get screwed by the refs again.

No, because the A-10 will want some team other than Dayton to win the A-10 Tournament.  Mark it down.

Oh, we're definitely going to get screwed again but if Bell can develop offensively between now and then, that may be enough to turn the tide.  He's done an excellent job of defending Toppin inside.  The next step is to make Toppin pay on the other end.

Yes they did and the bills then were down 5 and Goodwin tied it at the end of regulation.  I was also yelling at the refs from where I sit to stop protecting Dayton.

I guess the refs could have been completely obvious by calling the fouls only on the Billikens.  I yelled at the refs constantly about the Toppin moving screens.

I believe in fair play and I do not want the Billikens opponents to get hosed by officials.  I have seen it before when opponents get hosed the win means nothing to me.

We have argued enough about the officiating motives I prefer the posts when you bust me on grammar and spelling and correct me it is good humor I enjoy that.

Have a great Saturday and I look forward to reading your GDT posts during the LaSalle game.

Please don't read my posts to mean I want the officials to "protect" the Billikens.  Because they never seem to favor SLU, I don't think they should exhibit any bias against the Billikens, either.

The fact that Dayton is ranked 6th in the country is more of an indicator of the lower quality teams in college basketball this year than the quality of them. They’re a good team, but they’re not some transcendent team. 
My other Dayton take is that Toppin isn’t their best player. That’s Crutcher. If they run into a game in the NCAA tournament where Toppin starts getting called for the moving screens and they play a team with guards to match up well with their guards, they’re in trouble.
