Didn't take long for me to be reminded of how disgustingly awful NCAA basketball is. I don't understand why NCAA basketball has such terrible quality of play. In football, the coaching and tactics are often ahead of the pros. In college the style of play is archaic and just stinks.
Basketball is more a skilled based game so it's going to be uglier with younger, less skilled players.I think the three point line being shorter and letting them use a zone really mucks everything up. Officials are also often trash… only allowing 5 fouls puts key guys in foul trouble so one bad call gets exaggerated a bit.
During the tournament I swear they play 90 seconds then go to tv timeout… it’s so flipping choppy.
Plus you are probably watching these early season tournament games. They are playing multiple days in a row, 3 games in 4 days, etc.
