In this case where 5 seconds was erroneously put on the game clock I feel that a redo would be the fair thing to do. I'm not saying that I'm justified by rule or that I would do that in the same situation but that I had never seen or heard of this and wanted to talk about the correct way to handle it.
You cant redo this play. It really is not the fair thing to do...

The redo takes away from the offense a "scored basket" and gives defense new time to set up etc, etc.... In the play described has two potential outcomes. Score the basket like the officials did, or wipe it off and not count it because it did not get off in time...If there was no monitor officials did what they needed to do...
