For at least the last three years the NCAAW officiating video has included a section on bench decorum (and yes, Geno has been prominent). Geno not getting rung up immediately when he's at the division line?
Thank you. My initial thought upon reading mj's offered excuse was, "I hope not."

He still should act like an adult.

I really hope that the thinking of the officials on that play wasn't, "well the block up above was clean so let's ignore the body contact." 90% block and 10% body I can live with. That did not fit that philosophy.

How can that not T him up immediately when he is at mid-court? And by the way, it doesn't frickin' matter who T's him up. Anyone can get him. Was it because he wasn't on their end of the floor when he exploded or because they thought they might have missed the call? Geeze, I get tired of those excuses for not calling a T.

Dumb Tech.. why not just wait another 7 seconds and take your verbal shot walking to the locker room thus not giving the other team points. I like the no call. Great Block

The contact took place because you have a defender that jumped into a shooter. If anything the contact caused the block, not the other way around. I saw this last night and could not understand why it was not called. And two officials had a shot to call this and passed.

Peace

You have got to be kidding. Totally absurd.

Yeah, except when he still gets whacked and the other team starts the 2nd half with free throws...thus still giving the other team points.

I agree completely. I was simply wondering if the reason they passed was because there was a huge block up above. Obviously the contact below was far too great to ignore ...... but it would not be the first time officials passed on a foul because the "block was big so let's ignore the contact."

I agree with Rich, OKREF, Adam and hopefully 99% of the officials on this forum. Not calling this is crazy especially at this level and with 2 sets of eyes of the play. I can understand the UCONN coach going nuts but that still doesn't justify his actions. The tech should have come when he was charging to halfcourt but at least he did get whacked.

Good point.. I usually see officials look to give Techs when a coach is on the way to the locker room. And one usually sees a ton of NCAA tourney games starting the 2nd half with free throws. I like the block, big blocks small player shot let it ride too many stoppages and game interruptions anyway.

I've never seen a tourney game start the second half with free throws. I'm not saying it hasn't happened, but I haven't heard of it, let alone seen it. I probably forgot about a couple, but I doubt I forgot about "a ton."

As for the block, the defender clearly took out the shooter with her body as she was getting the ball. Clean up top does not mean you get to flatten the shooter in the process.

I like big blocks too but that defender went through to the shooter to get to the ball. That was a foul.
