Shrewsberry seemed to hint that he’s taken steps to try to convince the Big 10 that the conference’s officials are missing calls.

“I’m done sending in clips. I gotta coach my team. I just want Jalen Pickett to shoot more than two free throws per game. One of the best players in this league. Never gets fouled. Never gets fouled,” he continued.
