The Sweet 16 game between No. 1 seed Villanova and No. 5 seed West Virginia has been, arguably, the best game of the tournament.

It's been a crazy intense battle between two teams skilled at basically every position.

It's also been a game featuring a lot of whistles. Too many whistles? Probably.

Everyone seems to have a problem with the officiating in tonight's contest. There has been a ton of fouls called.

It's certainly disrupting the action.

We just had double-technicals called for what looked like a minor dustup between two players. The technicals probably did not need to be called.

Villanova currently leads West Virginia by 8. We've got about 4 minutes to play.

The game is on TBS. Get there now.
