Az Missed Dunk.....Travel

Anyone see this play in the Arizona game?

Player goes in for a "routine dunk" and the ball doesn't go all the way through the net but bounces off his body/shoulder and goes back-up through the top of the basket. Utah player "rebounds" the ball about six feet from the basket and kinda doesn't know what to do with it. His teammate and he just stand there and look at each other for an awkward few seconds. The rebounder then takes a few steps. TWEET!!!

Most of the players were transitioning to the other end of the court and weren't paying attention. The new T missed it for some reason. C is all over it and comes from mid-court and properly gives the traveling signal. Good call on an awkward situation.

PS - Actually good camera work and announcing too - props to CBS in this case.

Wow that was an interesting play. You can watch it by going here and then clicking on "Brackets / Games On Demand" and then the Arizona / Utah game and then click Highlights. It is near the end at with 0:38 left in the game.

The Trail (not really the "old" trail b/c the play never ended) was the one that called the travel. It also should have been a travel on the Utah player not the Arizona player but what a great job by the trail official.

Thanks for posting it!

Your right, it was the new L/old T that called the travel from mid-court. Unfortunaely, this highlight doesn't show it. The original call on TV was great.

And, it WAS Utah that got called for the travel, not Az. Great film, thanks for posting it.

Utah took the ball out on the ensuing throw-in so AZ must have been whistled for the travel.

The calling official on this now infamous play . . . none other than the esteemed Curtis "Quick Draw" Shaw. Damn fine call too.

Actually the AZ player with dreads catches the ball and drops it. Then the little Utah player grabs the ball, takes 2 steps, then dribbles. AZ should have taken the ball out under their own basket.

That's what I thought happened, but alas, CBS cut away......

Shaw had to come in w/ something. He sold it well and bailed out his two partners, especially the "C" who looked totally lost.

That's exactly what happened. Of the 13 people on the floor, Curtis Shaw was the only one who knew what was going on. He blew the travel on the AZ player before the Utah player could do anything with it.

Question Confused

Wait, am I missing something? What did Arizona do illegal? Arizona misses dunk, teammate rebounds ball, and subsequently drops the ball. Then a Utah player grabbed the ball and traveled with it. Shouldn't the ball have gone to Arizona on the baseline instead of giving back to Utah?

Yes... The ball should have gone to Arizona OOB. I watched the reply about a dozen times, and the AZ player gets the ball and just tosses it behind him to the ground, as if giving it to Utah for what he thought was an ensuing inbounds. The Utah player definitely traveled with the ball. It was the right call on the wrong team.

The ball has to go completely through the net for it to count as a basket. In the case of the Arizona player's dunk, the ball didn't do that.

It was the correct call.

(Of course, I'm going by memory as I watched that entire game yesterday.)

I think everyone agrees that it was no basket. The question is who, if anyone, committed a violation. What was your idea about the call?

How is it the correct call? If you watch the video again, you will see the AZ player who caught it didn't violate. The only violation came when the Utah player caught it. He seemed a little surprised, like he didn't know if it counted or not. He then traveled with the ball.
