Chadron coach caught up in officiating
Anyone sitting near the Chadron State (Neb.) College bench Friday night for the Colorado Mesa men's basketball game, couldn't help but notice Chadron State coach Brett Bargen complaining.
Sure, coaches spend a significant amount of time trying to persuade officials to make calls in their favor, but Bargen seemed to devote the entire second half on whining about calls.
As his team fell further behind, Bargen kept complaining about Colorado Mesa coach Jim Heaps asking about officials calls. You would think Bargen would've been more concerned about making adjustments to keep the Eagles in the game.
With or without Bargen's help, the Eagles did get back in the game, trailing by five points with two minutes left. Mesa put the game away, making 9 of 11 free throws in the final two minutes for a 76-70 victory.
