“I thought the two critical calls at the end of the game were really bad,” Mulkey said.
Louisville coach Jeff Walz wasn't very complimentary of the game's officiating, either. He noted the discrepancy between team fouls called through the first several minutes of the second half; by the time Baylor was called for its first second-half foul, the Cardinals — who led by 16 at the time — had seven team fouls.
“There's no question, there were a lot of fouls called against us,” Walz said. “I was just thankful on that last drive when Monique Reid went in for the layup, it was a late whistle, but I was glad he called it because she got clobbered.”
Griner, asked about the foul, said, “I mean, I feel like I got all ball, but, you know, I mean, wasn't my call. That's all.”
