Louisville’s Peyton Siva and Michigan’s Trey Burke are both in Chicago this week for the NBA Draft combine, and apparently they’ve had a chat about how the national championship game played out. Siva specifically addressed Burke’s “block” that was called a foul, much to the surprise of almost everyone watching.
Siva was honest about the situation. From mlive.com:
“I told him today, it was a good block.”
“I just walked to the free throw line, sunk my two free throws and went about the game. … (I told him) ‘afterward I was going to tell you, but you looked a little upset.’ “
Here’s a GIF of the play (via Fansided) if your memory is failing you this morning. Needless to say, Burke got all ball.
The call was made with just over five minutes to go and the Wolverines trailing by three. They never got any closer the rest of the way.
