I feel just awful for the teams and my fellow officials here right now. I know several guys who were working their first final-week games and 2 scheduled to work their first state championships. I...

I know this.

But in all of the videos I've seen regarding this POE, none of the plays look like this. Not sure I'd call this warding off since there is no defender there when he puts his arm out....

I know. But he can't rescind that foul.
I'm wondering if he would have a foul at all on second look.

This is a tough one, even on replay. A1 clearly doesn't see B1 and isn't really clearing space or warding him off. But, at the same time, his arm IS in motion so it's not quite as simple as B1 just...

I used to be that guy too. Especially when it came to spin moves.

Now I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum.

I tell partners who are still sticklers that we'll pass on it to start the game,...

I'm not sure this is true. Being on the other side of a plane doesn't mean one is penetrating it.

I don't like using the term "flopping" in the text of the rule. Opens the rule up to too much interpretation, compared to "faking being fouled."

What complicates it, imo, is that I think part of why they missed the illegal dribble is because they were very conscious of a take-foul and focused on that. Given that, I'm surprised they didn't put...

Looks like one official had a very off night. Or afternoon I guess.

What in the world happened on that 3 pt foul?

IDK Rut, this looks like a pretty good example of a hook/hold to me. I've definitely seen similar plays called as such. The only difference being the player being held attempting to jump, which...

I wouldn't call the push nonexistent, but it was a terrible effort of the UCF player.

I thought that hook would have warranted a second look had anyone noticed it live. But it's very congested and the ball went the other direction, so I don't blame them for not seeing it live.

Foul.

But the officials turned it into a 1-and-1 during the break somehow. Missed the front end and play went on

That's the kind of mistake that will likely cost them S16 assignments.

Nice.

Also important to note that "put the ball on the floor" doesn't mean dribble, as it's colloquially used. It means to literally set the ball on the floor and then pick it up after rising.

To me, the first travel is a travel that we shouldn't miss. I think it's quite obvious, coming at the beginning of a move/dribble. The second travel, on the spin, I'm less concerned with because it...

The first half of that game was brutally physical. Rebounding in particular.

But this is a foul at this level and DEFINITELY in HS. Probably a pass in the NBA tho.

I think there is a travel before the PC, he goes left-left on the hop.

But it's definitely not a block.
