Charge this


I am trying to swear off criticism of the guys in stripes – that's why I didn't mention them in the pregame post when I asked how Loyola could make up 35 points – but the last two charge calls need to be critiqued.

The first one, on Raivio, was egregious, seeing that the Loyola defender stepped on top of Raivio's foot, which seems to me would negate any chance of the defender being to the spot before Raivio.

Then there was Heytvelt's recent drive, the replay showing what I thought originally, that Knight never stopped and actually initiated the contact.

Of course, there's no one to blame but Heytvelt for the missed dunk.
