Men's Championship Game

Did anyone see Ed Hightowers traveling call in the 1st half before the media T.O. under 12 (11:33). OMG blows the whistle with his classic "BEEP, BEEP: Signals traveling really slow and takes baby steps showing the millions of people around the nation what the Kansas player did. That is like totally awesome

So far I think Hightower's signals and such are a little over the top.

What about when Rush went in for a layup early in the game and the Memphis guy undercut Rush. Why no intentional Foul?

Not sure why he completely turns his back to the players on OOB plays and then points to the moon.

Ah, let's see...because it wasn't an intentional foul?

He tried to get by him without contact but brush him with his right arm. That's not an intentional foul in my book and obviously not in their book either.

This was actually after he gave a correct interpretation of the double dribble rule. I'm expecting the apocalypse to begin during the first media TO of the second half.

Let me ask a question. Why should it have been intentional? I didn't see it, but nothing you wrote here indicates it should have been intentional. Unless the rules are different in California.

Actually the only part he got right was he could recover it. He then said it would be a violation if he advanced the ball.

So the world is safe, he's still a moron.

And I can't stand Hightower. He's a drama queen and the speed of this game was way beyond him, he could not keep up.

A little over the top is an understatement. Dude looks like the court jester out there.

Packer at his best.

Rose letting the throw-in get up court before picking it up.

He's risking a 5 second count call, Jim.

Thankfully the world has reset itself back to normal.

The other good one - towards the end of OT, clock clearly didn't stop after a foul and about 6 seconds ran off. The crew went to the monitor, and Packer claimed that they were checking who the fouler was. (Gotta love him being wrong twice on that one.)

Timing Error

Did anyone else notice this?

Kansas scored with 1:00 left on the clock in the 2nd half, and the clock stopped until the inbound. If noticed during the next dead ball, would this be correctable using a stopwatch and the monitor?

Looks like he kept up just fine. Another data point showing that one does not have to run like a gazelle to have good judgment and work a good game.

Final Fours in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2002, 2005, 2006, and 2008. Last year he was out with a knee injury.

It should had been a flagrant personal foul. And I am not saying that because I am a KU fan either.
