No one ever thinks the officiating is fair and even.

I went through the Nova boards (which are generally pretty well informed) after our narrow loss last year. A good half of them were passionate about how badly they'd been robbed by the refs, and what a miracle it was that they'd overcome a 5 vs 8 game.

Worth mentioning is that they outshot us 24-5 in FTAs, and they weren't whistled for a single foul in the last ~15 minutes of the game. Even so, they were SURE they were robbed. So, yeah, its not unexpected.

That having been said, NC State's fans may be the group who, imo, are the biggest and most persistent whiners over fouls. Which is saying something.
