I thought I was nuts. Gilbert down. Gampel stone silent. Co-eds in tears. Old fans in shock. Coach Hurley concerned.

But there!!!! The sound of a lone fan typing on his phone. Posting. To the Boneyard!!!!

Refs too busy putting BAdams in basketball jail for touching a guys arm to review a punch in the face
My EXACT thought when watching in real time. Friggin ridiculous, guy gets absolutely drilled in the face. I know not intentional, but was obvious in real time

I was under the impression all above the head contact gets reviewed. Not saying that the kid was trying hurt Al but he missed the ball by about 5 feet. I’ve seen flagrants for much much less.

Bet the mortgage that none of the "professional" writers that cover the Huskies will ask Hurley about the face punch and why it didn't call for an ejection or, at least, a foul. And why didn't Hurley push the issue with the refs?

I really feel bad for they guy. Just let him take the rest of the season off. We need him back out there for us next season

It’s fair to say.. Dan Hurley isn’t critical enough of referees.

That’s a totally coherent conclusion to reach.

When Gilbert was walked off Hurley was on the court barking, I think.

So they called a flagrant one on us on what appeared to be a marginal call to us, but not when Gilbert had his face smashed

Confirmed or your guess? - hoped it wasn't broken cheek bone or eye orbit.
They had his nose packed with cotton on the floor - really did not look like anything to do with his eyes.

Ton of blood, though. I really got nervous when I saw so much of it on the side of his head, but it came from his nose.

I'll be surprised if we see him again this year. Just does not seem worth the risk.

Thanks couldn't see him from my side of the court - blocked by temple players. Noses can bleed a ton, seen it as a school nurse.

People ITT are laughing at OP, it is true that this was a freak punch in the face, but it is also undeniable that AG has trouble staying on the floor. At the end of the first half AG dove for a ball, was slow to get up and had to be taken out of the game as well. I love the kid but it is extremely frustrating as a fan.
