Bruce Pearl continues to work as best as possible.
Not even two days after Virginia's first death, the head coach of Auburn made several appearances on Monday morning.
As expected, Pearl was asked about two controversy that came in favor of Virginia in the last minute of Saturday night's game – a foul caused by Samir Dowet when Kyle Gae was trying to launch a 3-point in the last seconds and missed double dribbling from You Jerome
Pearl was inclined to criticize refereeing after losing 63-62. Taking into account the possibility of calling officials both on ESPN and on Dan Patrick's show Monday morning, he also took the road.
"The biggest point I want to do, and I am glad about this, I do not just say it, because it is politically correct to say it. There is a human error in the game, – said Pearl to ESPN Get Up!
"Children make mistakes, trainers are wrong. Yes, officials are wrong. This is part of the game. Finish it. Sometimes they are going to go their own way, sometimes they are not going to go their own way. "

The pearl also missed the double dribbling of Thai Jerome
This comment was specifically in response to a missed double dribble that could almost certainly have changed the result games Auburn heads at two points when Jerome plays with his opponent, trying around the back of his neck. Then Jerome took a free move and went on the pitch a few paces before a foul on the Tigger was given that gave foul.
Jerome should not have been allowed to push the ball, but officials missed it – like most people watching in the arena and across the country.
Even Pearl missed him. He thought that Bryce Brown, who watched Jerome closely when he moved to court, put his hand on the ball, knocking it down shortly.
"I also did not see it," Pearl said to Dana. Patrick's show. – When I saw the breakdown in the room, I guessed that Bryce probably rejected her. But apparently Ty Jerome only lost it, picked it up, dribble it again and at that point I was just pleased they did not get a shot and we performed a foul and we were 1.5 seconds closer to the advance. "
it was Brown who turned down the ball, Jerome would be able to redeem possession and drip up without problems. But because it was an unforeseen loss of ownership, Jerome had to whistle for two-time dribbling and turnover.
Instead, the game was continued, and Brown contaminated Jerome, remaining 1.5 seconds, finding that it turned out to be a winner.
Pearl on refs: "They are the best in business"
After a foul on Auburn, Jerome threatened Guy in the corner. The guy got a quick blow, but Doughty died from 0.6 seconds. Guy then quietly sank all three free throws to give his team a lead, and a dramatic victory soon
. If this is a challenge that officials are going to do at the beginning of the game, then this is also a challenge that they should do in the last minute of the game.
but do not call it just because it's too late. That's why these three (officials) are in this game. They are the best in our business. You just have to move on, "said Pearl.
Instead of mourning the trial, Pearl said that he had already done his part in thinking about other aspects of the game. He was particularly critical of his own offensive gaming plan.
"There were some things that I could do better because they were haunting me for the last couple of nights," he told Patrick.
