Question

Between games today, my partner and I were discussing the most "overlooked" call.

He thought it was 3 seconds when the player just had a pinkie toe on the line.

I said it was lifting the pivot foot before starting a dribble.

Any others?

Please note - we are not talking about NBA where virtually every travel is overlooked.

I'd say the carry. There are so many times I don't see it called. And it always seems to be a point of emphasis at our association meetings.

I would say Handcheck. I see defense players with their hand in the other players back all night long, and it is never called.

ref18,

What does GENERAL OTIS T. WHACKINATOR think the most overlooked call is?

Ok, seriously, I think it's the handcheck too.

I think the player control by the point guard. The leading with the forearm and pushing off with it to clear space.

The partner killer.

The call where B1 fouls airborne A1 and then A1 charges B2.

I watched several high school championship and NCAA games today and I must have seen it 3 or 4 times. It was freaky.

The multiple foul!


For good reason, however!

Boys HS: Using the forearm on the dribble to create space to go up for the shot.
Girls HS: The Travel-Hop to create lift to get their 3 ptr to the hoop.

Calling either one brings half the house down.

IMO - the moving screen(of course there must be contact). There are many ways that a player can get away with this. Straight from a coach in w/ his offense revolved around setting screens.

Yeah brandan, you have to have displacement. Coaches yell all the time that their player is being touched and there is no advantage for the defender.

Peace

The T on the coach when he first deserves it, instead of when he has ignored the stop sign and we are sick of hearing him whine.

My vote is the intentional foul at the end of the game

Many vets will not call an intentional when a defensive player trying to make a comeback will grab an offensive player from behind to get to free throws.

Instead they reward the defense for making a bad play and just give a 1 and 1.

Most overlooked call in my opinion player control foul. Holds true especially for the newer official who doesn't understand the concept of refereeing the defense. If player control should be called the vast majority of the time a block will be called.
