Maybe The Fizz should avoid slicing and dicing Teflon Rick around these parts?
The Leisure Suit and his bubble Cardinals waltzed into the Dome and walked out with an unlovely 66-60 Valentine’s Day win.
While Syracuse waited too long to turn on the intensity and Wes Johnson was once again merely mortal, the Orange wasn’t helped by the officials.
Referee Tim Higgins’ intentional foul call on Kris Joseph is the kind of whistle that makes you strangle your Otto doll and cut his arms off with a ginsu.
Team Fizz breaks down foul-gate. Mike Couzens: “Higgins blew the call at the end of the game. You cannot as a referee inject yourself into the middle of the game. You’re not letting the players decide the game. Unless he’s going to punch him in the face, you can’t call the intentional foul call there.”
Ted Conroy: “It was clear Joseph was not doing this with any malicious intent. You let someone who’s not a player on the court decide the end of the game.”
Valentine’s Day can suck for a lot of reasons. Loneliness, disappointment, overspending. Well, add Tim Higgins to that list.
