Totally agree. I was shocked when I saw the clip you posted in the thread I started that the C was also signalling the 10 second. Two tough misses for that crew in the closing moments. One call...

I agree that there is definitely a time to come out of your primary but this is definitely NOT one of them. The C called Cooney for stepping on the endline from above the FT line extended while...

Syracuse v. Gonzaga (video request)

Wow! Interesting ending from an officiating stand-point. Doug Sirmons as C called Trevor Cooney OOB on the endline!!! on a steal that looked like it was going to lock up the game for Syracuse. ...

MA uses a 30 sec clock for boys and girls and has for quite some time (1997 or 1998 for boys and before that for the girls). I would say that a defensive game on the boys side will result in a couple...

You are the final word on this board as to the block/charge, so am I being nitpicky with the slight hop toward the endline and toward the shooter after he gains LGP?

In APG's post look at :40 of...

Full disclosure: I am a Syracuse grad.


On first look - live action of the play at 10 seconds - I thought it was a block. Then on the first replay I thought it was so close that I couldn't be...

I couldn't agree more. Furthermore, I think it's incredible given the video evidence (fist closed, clear upper-cut punching motion that is directed at an opponent) that this was NOT a FF2. Think...

I don't love it either, but the thinking was that the table was missing the signal from the lead.

In practice, what usually happens is that the L holds the 3 point attempt signal until the T makes...

In these parts (MA) we were told 2 or 3 years ago that the L shouldn't signal a successful 3 point FG. Our mechanic is to signal the 3 pt FG attempt if it's in your primary. If the T sees the...

definitely not a T. Nowhere in Rule 10 is there any support for a T in this situation and this is all Rule 3 had to say.

If I read Boeheim's lips correctly he seemed to be arguing that the defender was in the restricted area, which the replays show that he (barely) wasn't.
