Basketball at its fundamental roots is all about the offense beating the defense to more advantageous position to score. It is the spirit for which every rule was written.

Look, it is a close play. The real learning on this is the court positioning and communication between the C & L.

This thread can be closed as far as I'm concerned.

I agree with both points here: that officials who require defenders to be standing still in a spot long before contact are making defense too difficult, and that such a requirement seems to be imposed by many HS officials.

Some folks I have worked with seem to call a block on virtually all contact, and they seem to justify doing so on the ground that they get less flak for it. That's not good officiating, IMO, and makes defense too hard.

Some people are worried about the "pendulum" swinging the other way, with too many PC calls, making offense too hard. I don't see that happening in my area.
