Calling all refs, please help a fan out on a terrible T called

ETSU vs. Belmont in the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament semi-finals. ETSU up by 1 with time running down. You can watch the play and call unfold here:

(third story down the page) http://estarsports.wordpress.com/

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.

You want help? Sure. It's over. Move on with your life. Hope that helps.

You want to talk about the call? Solid T. Kid brought his elbow up, and swung near the opponent's head WHILE trash-talking. He's lucky Doug didn't toss him. I've met Doug Sirmons at camp, he's solid.

Swung the elbow. Also said something. It got an immediate T. Looks like a great call to me.

Now, go home, fan boy.

"You certainly must agree that it was a great call--even in Black & White!"

Thumbs down

So you're upset because at the end of the game, your team missed the front end of a one-and-one and then shot an air ball on a three pointer? BTW - how many layups and free throws did the referees miss?

I think that no matter what you hear from the referees here, you're still going to think that your team got screwed.

Yea it looks like white 20 just wanted to foul and stop the clock (nothing international). Swader over-reacted and swung his elbow. #20 immediately walked away without saying a word.

Question

BTW - what's "Atlantic Sun"? Sounds like a casino.
