True. The rough play was away from the ball.

But the rough contact happened right in front of the Trail (not sure, but she may even have called a foul on the "throw down").

The Trail "got out...

Despite Its Violent Nature ...

And yet, nobody in the video reacted to this play as if it was of a violent nature.

Not the players, not the officials, and not the offended head coach. The players just stood around (nobody...

What type of foul is this? Observe the play and in the post Red No. 15 commits a foul. Make a determination as to what type of foul should be ruled.

Consistency ...

Good point. From the "extended" version of my pregame conference:

Be consistent with each other, and with what has already happened in the game, what we’ve called, and what we haven’t called.

Traveling ...

Anybody notice Black #25 lifting his pivot foot before he releases the ball to start his dribble?

Let's see if IAABO picks that up in its play commentary.

The "hot stove" touch by White #12? Sure. Incidental contact.

Borderline? Agree.

Does offensive player foul before catching the ball? On an inbounds pass, player receiving ball contacts her opponent. Was this legal incidental contact? Was this a team control foul?

I Touch Myself (The Divinyls, 1990) ...

A1 ends his dribble and holds the ball in both hands. B1 reaches in and strikes (only) the ball, hard enough to be barely heard, but not hard enough to dislodge the ball to cause A1 to lose control....

Illegal dribble.

While the toss into the air could have been a pass (or maybe even a try), once it was determined that it wasn't a try, wasn't touched by an opponent, or wasn't a pass or fumble...
