PCF here--- no slo mo required to adjudicate.
The announcer sounded like Bill Walton [of the "conference of champions" fame] when providing the rationale "feet weren't set, feet weren't set"---and also sounds like many coaches who hold this belief/misconception. Alas, should I expect anything different?

Looks like a PC to me.

Would like to know what the official thought he saw or the rationale behind the call.

Two-Fists 'Arisin'

There is a dynamic that occurs when an official innately reacts with the impulsive, personally patterned "two-fists rising" motion upon the immediate cranial detection of something needing to be called, followed by the muscular reaction of a downward pounding of the hips. That habitual reaction typically results in a default blocking call. Even when it's actually a charge. The beginning decides what the end is. The habitual determines the outcome.
All too common. That's what happened here. The habit led to the call.

And here I thought announcers as a whole were getting better with the rules. SMH

PC.

Had one just like it last night.
Coach: "But the defender was sliding across the lane the whole time."

Coaches, do you teach your players to play defense standing like statues?! No? Then don't expect the other team to either.

*Interesting neurophysiological explanation Freddy, both informative and entertaining.

Could that particular official have helped themselves by: first holding up a closed fist [to signal a foul is going to be called], then that would've afforded him/her a ''moment of pause" to "decide" how to adjudicate/quickly replay in his/her mind, THEN signalling their decision [block or charge]? Or would the lack of an instantaneous decision somehow led the stakeholders (player/coaches) to doubt the certainty of the call?
Just askin...

Player control foul, if not for LGP being obtained (which the defender did, then for the stiff-arm (forearm shove) done by the offensive player. CI.

Here's a one-minute audio clip featuring J.D. Collins advising his officials to give a good "Stop the Clock" signal prior to the preliminary signal on site. It's at about the 30 second mark. Simple, but good advise for NFHS officials, too. Collins: Stop the Clock Signal Mandatory
