That half circle is the dumbest rule in basketball. I mean to say that a charge can't happen inside that area is absurd.
You can blame the refs all you want and they suck but this is ALL on the Illini. They can't even run enough offense to hardly even get a shot off in the last 10 minutes. It is going to be a blowout in a game we were winning by 13 points at the 10:30 mark in the 2nd half. John needs to ride off into the sunset.
