I was one of those "others". However, my stance on the other was that the original video was too grainy to tell. On this one, that is not the case. Her hand came no where near hitting the backboard. If you're going to call a T on this one (and I don't think I would) it will not be for slapping the backboard.

Ok *I take it back ... hadn't watched the rest of the video and was only looking at the first play. I think it's her elbow that hits and makes the sound ... but it's not her hand.

No way her elbow contacted the backboard.

A friend of mine worked the NCAA W tourney and this is what he said...............no way would a guy make that call if he wanted to move on. If a female makes the call it would be ok....but no way in hell is he hittin his whistle

Interesting point.

I think that in this case the call would take away from the game. Women's basketball fans are excited that they have a player that can legitimately dunk. Let's everyone enjoy it before we start ringing them up!

She'd probably have to about do a handstand on the rim in order to be rung up.

How would that be OK??? The whole gist of the thread is...THERE IS NOTHING THERE! Is it OK just because it's a female ringing up a female? If that's the case, that is pretty screwed up.

You're "friend" is also intimating that there is a different set of standards for females doing NCAA W. Does he really want to go down that road?

Whether he wants to go there isn't really relevant to deciding whether he's right or not.

I don't know if there is a different set of standards, but it wouldn't surprise me. In many segments of society and the work force there are often unwritten differences that apply to one group of people that don't apply to another.

I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying it is.

I agree. I've seen it first hand. Just surprised an NCAA official would make a statement like that out loud.

Is there the same type of thing regarding a male official calling a technical foul on a high profile female coach?

I can't imagine that this is leading to any kind of productive conversation.

I have never heard any coordinator or anyone else in women's basketball discuss the gender of officials. I don't think they care as long as you get the job done.

And yet there's a supposed comment by someone who worked the NCAAW tournament. I wouldn't *expect* such a comment to be made on the record by anyone in a position of power. Doesn't mean that this line of thinking isn't out there. Mainly, I was curious.
