So you're saying that you don't think it hit the backboard first?

Ball goes toward and into the glass after the swat, so itís not a tie. I think thatís the only time it hits glass. Good block.

Note I was just asking the question. I think it's close and a hard decision, but thinks he got ball then ball got board.

Close call...but it was hit before it hit the backboard.

I don't like who called it. He had the worst angle of the C/T for making that decision. It was basically like making a foul call from a straightlined position.

Agree itís just about 50/50. But I think ^this is a fair critique. Not easy to sit on this kind of call, but the book says the official on the other side has primary on this call and this is one of the reasons why.

The call was right. The ball just hit the board then blocked, you have to go super slo mo. Either way tie goes to the offense. The defenders action after the call was bs IMO.

In HS its a clean block.

I find it hard to nitpick these.

It's close, the official got a look, he made a decision.

I rarely find anything of value in discussing GT calls. They either got it right or they got it wrong. But the call is very difficult to make in the heat and speed of the game.

This is one of the reasons I don't like the college aspect of the rule that once it hits the board it is off limits. It can be so difficult to judge. I prefer the high school rule that if it is still going up then it is fair game.
