OK, if we assume that is correct...are we really saying we should be making 50-50 calls in that situation?

Arizona had gone to the line 3 or 4 times, and Wisconsin not at all, and Bo Ryan was riding the officials pretty hard.

Indeed.

There is a pretty clear blocking foul there. Now, I don't terrible mind the idea of passing on it and letting it play out in that situation.

I don't think anyone doesn't think Rush was joking in that Irving won't be checking his bank account for a $5,000 deposit.

I think the officials in that room were quite certain the message being...

A1 drives to the basket. He begins his motion to shoot. Then he is fouled. Then he travels (possibly as a result of the foul, but maybe not). Then he makes the basket.
