Buzz Williams gets a huge Technical after MU cut the lead to 37-34.

The post-game radio show on ESPN 540 was interrupted by a power failure but Buzz Williams said, "We had 12 TOs in 1H and no offensive rebounds"

He said that MU gave Gtown too many layups after on live ball TOs and layups after offensive rebounds. The way to beat Gtown is to prevent them from making layups. MU did not do that…
