This is why I posted in the writeup thread that the NCAA needs to revamp D1 college BB. It's not just Griner. All the thugball teams get away with this. In this aspect, WBB is worse the MBB.
So true, WBB has some glaring inequalities when it comes to foul calls. I really started to notice it when Standford had that big center a few years ago, it looked like everyone else on the floor was playing basketball, but she was allowed to play football.
There was this obvious foul, and then the no call over-the-back on her putback in the first few minutes of the game. Two obvious foul calls that would have changed the complexion of the game. I think it obvious there is a mandate in from the league that she is to stay in the game, as though watching her lumber around the floor and hack people is good for teh game.
I think we should post this picture frequently. It represents everything that is horrible about the NCAA. They are more concerned about money, than fair play. This degenerates and pollutes the foundation that our country stands on.

I always was taught that basketball was a non-contact sport. I know it hasn't been that way for a long time. The referees have let it happen, coaches and players take advantage. Players have already gotten hurt -- Pops concussion for instance. What will it take to bring it back to a real non-contact sport? And this goes for the men and women's game.
