NCAA rules apply here

In New York, girls basketball is played under NCAA women's rules, so "disqualifying foul" is the correct term and rule, not flagrant foul.

NCAA rules give wide authority to the official and include fighting and flagrantly contacting an opponent among the reasons for calling a disqualifying foul.

The "disqualifying foul" is a new term this year, replacing what used to be a Flagrant 2 foul. The NCAA even offered printed guidelines in judging a disqualifying foul.

Neither the judge nor the school superintendent have any business getting involved in this decision. Shame on both of them.
