Casey West @AaronGleeman One of the refs was MN Twins VP of corporate affairs if you didn't recognize him

If this is true -- well, you probably didn't need another reason to dislike the Twins. There were two major blown calls that didn't help No. 16 UNC-Asheville's near-upset of No. 1 Syracuse, including an inexcusable out-of-bounds call that went the Orange's way with UNC-A down three.

So, by the transitive property of the Minnesota Twins, it's Nick Punto's fault we didn't see the first-ever win by a No. 16 seed over a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.
