Zach Edey quickly became a name this year that was synonymous with bad officiating and missed calls.

While it was to no fault of his own, Edey’s Purdue Boilermakers made it to the national championship game, defeating the SEC regular season champion Tennessee Volunteers in the Elite Eight to get there.

During the contest, the Vols had 13 fouls called against them before Edey had his first. And that first foul against Edey did not come until nine minutes into the second half. Furthermore, Edey drew 16 fouls against the Vols and only one was called against him.

Beyond the Elite Eight matchup against the Vols, there were missed calls against Edey all season.
