Why the hell is the defense trapping/pressuring 90-ft from the hoop in a tie game? That's just ASKING to get bit.
It is a tough one, especially when you start thinking about the consequences of a no-call. It could have resulted in the official ruling the player out of bounds, if he thought his foot contacted the line.

The official is right there to make the call. IMHO, a great call and great sell by the official.

I did; just to watch though. My last game was a quarterfinal up here.

I caught the full slate of games 5A and 6A boys and girls finals on Friday at Siegel.

Obviously I always want a final but it was kind of relaxing to come down and just watch.
