L o n g Game!

Boys JV game - 1st of season for both teams. Schools are archrivals and mortal enemies. Partner and I are filling in for another pair because we had our varsity game rescheduled. We knew we were going to have to be at our best.

First foul called with only 3 seconds off the clock. We called - believe it or not - a new record at least for us - a total of 89 fouls that night. The AD emailed this to us the following morning - congratulating us on keeping the game in control. Out of all the calls - the only comment/question from either coach came on a jump ball. He said my whistle was a little quick - that the players had to both grasp the ball for 2-3 seconds before that call could be made. I smiled and said I believed it was simultaneous possession and we were going with my whistle. He laughed and admitted that even if I was wrong it was kind a lame complaint in that game.

Anyone else with L O N G games this year?

Wow...89 fouls would take care of most of the players on some of the teams I've seen this year...had one last night with 6 players. At 45 fouls/team (average, obviously) and 12 team members (just guessing) that would mean three players with three fouls and nine with four, if nobody fouled out. I'm guessing you had a couple disqualified players?

I had a long one last week - girls JV that seemed to last an eternity. Even higher than normal number of held balls, violations, etc., and a decently high number of fouls, though nothing crazy. Game had to have lasted more than 1.5 hours, which is pretty darn long considering 6 min. quarters...

Talking

Since I don't allow overtimes, I really never have long games.

JVB last night, we held the varsity game up with an overtime. Home team was down by one with time running out in regulation. My partner calls a foul with .5 seconds left, putting the shooter on the line where he proceeded to shoot 50%.

Did you tell your partner the overtime was "his fault"?

He knew. During the timeout preceeding the first free throw, he said he sure hoped the shooter made both shots; or none.

During the timeout preceeding the 2nd free throw, he reiterated his hope that the shooter made both.

No such luck.

Haven't you heard of lane violations?

Hey - partner just called with great idea. He figures since we already called 89 fouls this week - we're good for the week. The rest of our games he said we can just call violations! Hmmmmmm not a bad idea huh?

We'd already reached our max of those for the game.

One on red when two players decided, just as I was bouncing the ball to the white shooter, to switch places. It actually cost white, though, as they got the rebound about 2 feet from the hoop. Player made the 2nd shot.

One on white when, after his coach was done talking to him, he came running in and crossed the 3 pt. line after the shooter had the ball. FT shooter missed his 2nd opportunity.

Snaqs:

Not apparent from your description but was the ball at the disposal of the shooter before or after red players were moving about?

Sorry.
As the shooter caught the ball, the two defenders were just leaving their initial spaces to play musical chairs.
