Photo of the Weekend: UCLA "Non-Foul" on Texas A&M's Donald Sloan
I'm still not over this image (found on Rush the Court via Deadspin) from Saturday night's UCLA-Texas A&M game.
The last thing that should surprise anyone is a final second call going UCLA's way, but now it's getting out of hand. We may have to classify a bruin as a member of the felid family, as they're currently working on their fourth life.
I'm always in favor of letting players decide the game, but when a player physically can't get a shot off because not only was he hacked in the wrists, but had his shooting elbow mauled, there's a problem. You have to make that call as disappointing as it would have been to send the Aggies to the free throw line.
Then again, it wouldn't be the first time a national champion "got a few breaks." I'm telling you, it's the hot cheerleader factor.
