Coach tried to convince me it wasn't when it was called by the coach but when I blew the whistle.... I believe my comments was "That's not accurate Coach".

The other one I have seen is when a kid rises up and makes a cross court pass and the coach tries to call time out while its in the air. Sorry Coach.

True story, girls' VAR years ago in Michigan, and a two-person crew. Visitors are down three with less than 30 seconds to play. V-PG brings the Ball up court, Table Side. My partner is T, Table Side. V-HC is behind my partner and requests a TO. My partner turns his head toward V's Bench to verify V-HC's TO request. As my partner sounds his whistle for the TO, V-PG has already released at 3pt FGA that touches nothing but net. The Visitor's never came close to tying the game after their TO.
