NJIT-Vermont Ending

https://youtu.be/UeAdv_mzLrU

There was a crazy finish in yesterday's NJIT-Vermont game. I've seen a few fans wonder why a travel wasn't called when the player slid to the ground.

As I understand it, the dribble did not technically end until the ball was pinned against his body. By that point, his feet had stopped sliding, so there was no traveling violation.

Is my interpretation of the rules correct?

Also of note, the game clock appears to have started a little late on the inbounds pass. Was there anything the officials could do about that on replay?

NJIT-Vermont Ending

You’re right. You could stand on your head or do cartwheels and summersaults if you want, provided you keep dribbling. In this case, the dribble continued during the slip and didn’t end until after. Legal play followed by a legal (and awesome!) bounce pass.

The clock on the board seemed to start within 0.1 seconds which is fine. I think the TV production truck clock was a touch later, but that’s not the official clock.

Whoops! You're right! I was looking at the wrong clock.

Thanks for the response!

I do not see a travel at all. He is falling and grabs the ball and then passes the ball while basically still on the floor. I got nothing and a good basket at the end.

Peace
