Yes the R made the initial mistake, but the C needs to have a little better awareness than that. His Spider senses should have been going off knowing he had someone above him. Since C didn't...

Add me to the foul column. Defender is not legal and makes contact with an airborne shooter causing her to lose balance and land against the basket support. She did not go down like that on her own....

There was a really loud outcry on social media about this being a foul and how she was "tackled", i thought the replay clearly showed this to be a great no call. Especially in transition like that....

I will take slight issue with the statement that he "sold" this call. His footwork and cocked arm indicates he is getting ready to ship it, then he changes his mind and indicates the block.

This looks like an easy charge. I am actually shocked by the comments on that Adams tweet. All 50/50 block charges should be blocks? No way. Why would we want to encourage the offense to plow into...

That looked like a PC all day to me. Defense had establish LGP and didn't do anything to lose it.

LOL at the kid taking a shot at the ref in post game interview. How about you pull up and shoot a bank shot and not force a call?

I would like to think I would no call this.

Play 1; I love calling the illegal screen on these plays where the guy hands it off and continues forward to get a piece of the defender, but on this one I see the passer as still being a ballhandler...

1. Easy foul.
2. I got nothing.
3. Easy call, coach is mad at the guy setting the screen but that's on his point guard.
4. Travel. Would that have been called if he had gone up with an immediate...

Video request - Missouri v LSU

The PC called at 5 seconds left in the second half was a very interesting looking play and is worth looking at. Then the no-call in the last 5 seconds is also worth talking about.

1. that seems like a ticky tac travel but was technically right I guess.
