A few more trips and I stop the game and give a warning... it was down hill from there.

I am lead a player tries to go through a mess and loses the ball and a player kicks it. Whistle! Kick!
Big guy gets bumped from behind after the whistle turns around two hands shoves the player to the ground! Tweet technical foul.

Home (White) is now hitting threes and the lead is getting away early and will stay 20 plus but green doesnt care. This is a rivalry and people will die...

Later a green player gets into it with a white player taunting him. My partner calls another T.

Later home coach gets into it with my partner and he gets a T.

Later White 5 the center after the whistle blows shoves Green 44 (earlier guy who got a deadball technical) and he gets a T.

Green 44 on a FT rebound instead of going into the key throws an elbow into the head of White 5. I go intentional.

...
Any reason you didn't go flagrant?

Conference rivalry, first conference game of the season back in December.

Visiting team owns the first half, home team claws back into the game in the second half.

Final minute, visiting team uses its final TO. Afterwards, with 18.6s left, home team down by two (they've never led), needs to go the length of the floor. I'm C opposite. With 8 seconds left, they find a shooter open in the T's corner and she nails the go-ahead three. The place goes nuts, and knowing that the visiting coach is out of TOs, I simply stare at the home coach expecting her to call a TO in order to set up her defense.

She doesn't. Rookie coach. Caught up in the moment. Failed to act.

Visiting team, almost as if they've practiced this exact scenario, inbounds the ball with the clock running at 6, gets a quick outlet pass tableside, and they find the streaking wide open girl on the other end who one-dribbles in for the game winning layup with 1 second left.

I didn't really need to emphatically score the goal (it was clearly in time), but I did anyway. I've never seen quite the look of stunned disbelief as I saw along the home bench. We got to run right by it while we escaped the gym.

In a season otherwise somewhat devoid of nutcutters, this was a pleasant exception.

He got ran into it was a reaction and in my opinion not a fight act.

If you are talking about his elbow on the rebound. He didnt look at his opponent and square him up. There is a lot of judgement in some of this high end rare calls. Maybe I was wrong.. I dont know. I am glad he got tossed later so he felt the full punishment of his actions.

Been there. Done that. Gotta occasionally show some passion, we're just flesh, and blood, not robots.

It's Gotta Be The Metric System ...

Twice this year I had coaches tell me that anything below the free throw line extended puts the subsequent throwin on the endline.

Where do they get this stuff? Are they possibly confusing it with another rule set, like maybe those Canadian metric system rules?
