Take a look at those pictures and think about the related calls from the officials.

1) No foul call on Ridley when physically abusing Embiid

2) No foul call on Holmes when pussing Wiggins in the back. UT, I believe Holmes, rebounded the missed shot.

6) Tharpe called for a foul going for that steal.

8) Selden called for a foul diving for the loose ball.

None of the photos caught Embiid on that horrible call for the block.

Kansas played an extremely soft game. We were outplayed all over the court. However, the officiating was some of the worst of the season against Kansas.

That pretty well sums it up (plus other bad calls against KU). When Ridley dragged Enbiid down and threw him to the floor and there was no call, I knew it was going to be a long night. And none of the reporting ever mentions the bad officiating, even when it is so blatant, even if it is a major factor in the outcome (I'm not saying it was this time, but let's face it - it's awfully hard to come back when you have to not only beat the other team, but the zebras too.).

My concern is that the officiating is affecting Joel's play. His first Technical was a valid call. His second Technical was not. Now comes this assault by Ridley - and the refs look the other way. That's got to be confusing and frustrating to Joel - and his play in the last few games reflects that. He's beems more guarded, more cautious in his play and that has affected the flow and creativity of his game. The referees are limiting what Joel brings to our team, and, by default, they are degrading the team's ability to play to its potential.

I hope Bill has discussed this with Joel - and that he has also addressed the issue with Conference officials.
