Barnes: You're not gonna get that call"

Here are the first few paragraphs of the story I filed from Tuesday night's hoops game:

ATHENS – If there was a call to be made, some injustice done to Chris Barnes and his teammates, he wasn’t saying so. The Georgia forward would only say that “at a critical time like this in the SEC, you’re not gonna get that type of call.”

Brian Williams, the other critical part of the play, said it was the biggest shot he’s ever made, and was “just glad it counted.”

Georgia head coach Mark Fox, when asked whether a foul should have been called on Williams, gave a long pause before finally answering.

“I’ll have to watch the tape,” he said. “Sorry.”

The tape may show that a foul could have been called on Williams before he made his game-winning layup to give Tennessee a 59-57 win.

But it would also show that in a game that was back-and-forth the whole way, Georgia (13-4, 2-2) didn’t look as sharp as when it routed Mississippi and beat Kentucky in the past 10 days.

The last minute on Tuesday summed that up for Georgia.

Stegeman needs to make sure the shot clock horn is working correctly the next time we play a home game. That mal-function cost us & gave UT two huge points down the stretch. So much for home court advantage.

Couldn't agree with you more. Two blown calls at the end of the game is hard to swallow.

I was wondering the same Sports Dawg about the horn, I didn't hear it on TV
