Neat InBound Play
 
Louisville @ Seton Hall tonight. In final seconds of close game, defense challenging, player inbounding takes step across line and then throws ball to referee. Referee throws back to inbounder who makes nice pass to beat the pressure.

I hope a lot of coaches were watching because thats a great play, sort of a 6 on 5.

That works until the official just bats the ball to the floor.

The way this is written, it's a violation. Do mean player who is about to go out of bounds to in bound tosses ball to referee?

I took it to mean after a made basket.

Lee:
'splain more, please. Having a hard time placing player after player throws ball to official. Is he still in the air towards inbounds or has he alighted inbounds?

O.7 seconds left, Louisville has just scored and SH inbounding. Player in bounding takes one step and puts foot onto court. Then he tosses ball back to Referee Tony Greene who returns a sharp pass back to him and then inbounder passes onto court.

If someone can post a clip it would be helpful.

I think Mr Tony Greene got some 'splainin to do why he didn't hit his whistle for throw-in violation......

Yeah, or the referee ducks the pass, then stands back up to continue his 5 count (he's now on 2) while the ball rolls into the corner. I've seen a referee do exactly that- duck when the ball passed to him.

Stupid idea if it was intentional, too risky in a tight game. Just execute what you run for the game sitch.

Certainly not as clear as watching it on ESPN360 but here is what it looked like for those who don't get ESPN360 or have it Tivo-ed

Is it just me, or did it sound like a whistle was blown after the made basket? You can see all the players stop play as if one was blown. That's the only way I can see why the violation wasn't called.

That's what it looked/sounded like to me. Strange.

It appears as if Tony Greene gets to two on his five second inbound count.....but there is no doubt the players stopped. Gray 10 is the only one that moves.

Is there anything in NCAA rules/casebook or mechanics that could possibly make what we all saw not a violation?
NCAA guys......your thoughts.
Man, that was strange.....

Not an NCAA guy, but the only thing I can figure is that, while none of the officials seemed to have blown the whistle, Greene figured out that everyone stopped and the confusion caused the issue.

Very strange play.

Clark Kent Fri Jan 22, 2010 05:55am

The ball went through the net around 1.2 or 1.1, but it ran down to .7 before stopping. Perhaps one of the other officials blew to check the clock and see if they should add some time and thus the players stopped. However even then it wouldn't make sense as to why the would have inbounded the ball after the alleged violation.
