IPS FILM ROOM: Inconsistent Officiating In State-UNC

January 23, 2023

Today we take a look at the officiating in NC State versus North Carolina. 

North Carolina entered leading the ACC in free throw rate, but never this year had the Heels had an advantage at the line like they did against the Wolfpack.  North Carolina attempted 27 more free throw attempts, which led to a +24 scoring advantage from the line for the Heels.

NC State played much of the game with foul trouble despite playing in the paint and through the post offensively, just like UNC.

In this feature, we look at a variety of calls on Armando Bacot, D.J. Burns, R.J. Davis, and Terquavion Smith, among others.  Ultimately, poor, one-sided officiating played a huge role in the outcome.
