I don’t like it when the sports commentators control the flow of the scoring and information. And it evident that they favored the top ranked team Indiana.. Why won’t they dominate? Their players are larger, however the other team Mount Saint Mary’s have talent that should ‘ve been show cased as well.. Politics…Not about talent anymore…

Look at all the footage that’s displayed on the website, all of it is Indiana scoring, none of Mount Saint Mary’s points being scored. No mention of their player who had the most points.
