All you have to do is watch

All you have to do is watch the first half highlights and watch Siler run over the defender with no call to see this game was decided by the officials.

Typical Peach Belt basketball.

He flopped--the Pacers are a bunch of thugs and Vince Alexander is an OG.

Of course he flopped, it

Of course he flopped, it could not have been the 300 + pounds running into someone, who had position, at full speed. USCA gets two technicals, one on the offensive end, meanwhile Dip can stand at half court glaring at officials (which is supposed to be an automatic technical) and gets nothing.

IMO, Aiken had more fans

IMO, Aiken had more fans before this group got here--I believe they know in their hearts the team is full of thugs.

Vince should have coached his players not to taunt--the technical should have been called on the dunk and the subsequent hanging from the rim and pointing.
