Vid request - Ark vs Tenn - Hang on rim
On ESPN - With about 11:30 to go in first half, Ark player drives and hangs on rim without ball. Takes time to look at ref while hanging on rim. Legal?

Any Advice Would Be Appreciated ...

I bet that he was looking at the official with the hope of getting some last second advice on how to prevent an injury on his landing. He wouldn't be up there showboating, that's unsporting, all college players know that, they're all such perfect gentlemen, like those Olympic curling guys, and gals.

It looks like the player grabs the rim to try to prevent injury to himself. Also, there was another teammate behind him as he swung backwards.

With apologies to Sgt. Schultz, I see nothing, I call nothing. :D

I'm letting this go. He was swinging, so had he let go it would have led to an awkward landing that could have caused injury. I don't think I'd get too up in arms if the official had called a tech here, but IMO passing on it was not a mistake.
