Would love to hear from the referees out there. You can tell by my name how I fell about it. So what do you think? Thanks.
Appropriate technical foul. The kid threw an elbow and then trash-talked. Could have easily led to a fight. Do you need someone to blame? Blame the player for being an idiot and blame the coach for not having more control of his players.

You're kidding, right?

Throwing the elbow is a technical foul. Had he connected with the elbow, I would certainly have ejected him.

Mouthing off to the opponent is a technical foul.

Both, an very, very easy technical foul.

Instead of blaming the official, you should be upset with your idiot player for helping your team lose the game.

I think it was a justified call. Either way it goes a player has to keep their cool. He was being fouled near the end of the game. And the player had a chance to redeem himself and missed the FT. The bottom line, blame the kid for his actions, not the officials.

Peace

I saw the subject line and got excited. Now it would just be piling on, though. I won't watch the clip, I'll just wait for the book.

(If you've made it this far in the responses,) You won't find an official on here worth anything that says this should not have been a technical foul. That's because, as plenty have stated (BktBallRef's points, in particular, outline the most basic and accurate details), it is and should be a technical foul by NFHS and NCAA standards.

I will give the OP partial credit for at least being open and honest in what he's looking for.

And for the record, OP, I agree. It was a terrible T. It's absolutely, inexcusably horrible how your man robbed your team with his inability to control his emotions during a critical part of the game. Fortunately for him, the other kid walked away. Or your man may well have cost your team more than just a T.

Good job on the ref's part too to pick that up quickly and deal with it before it got any worse. Who knows what else your man might have cost your team if the ref hadn't called that T.

Edited to inject a dose of reality

If you go to the NY state governor's website you'll find a link to an organization that will help you relieve some of that excitement.
