I had a tough situation today that I would like some feedback on.

Big Boys Varsity HS tournament in town. White is leading Red by 2 points. White shoots and three guys go for the rebound. I'm lead and I can't see who tipped the ball out-of-bounds, the backboard shielded me somewhat. I asked my partner and he can't help. There are 24 seconds left in the game and we have to go to the arrow. Not a great situation to say the least. Red had the arrow and they got a 3 pt attempt with 4 seconds left that rimmed out.

Jay, it happens. There's only two of you. If there's nothing there to learn about maybe being in a different or better position, or anything that maybe might prevent it from happening again, then all you can do is just say "whoops", and then forget about it. Iow, forget about it.

If you really don't know, then it's not fair to guess. Is it possible that you could have gotten a better angle somehow? If not, then don't give it another thought. You did what you had to do. If you could have gotten a better angle, then tuck that away for next game.

But in either case, you didn't know who touched it, so the right thing to do is go to the arrow.
