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.

I have to think it's just a brain fart at a terrible moment. They call the foul, head to the tv timeout, discuss the foul situation (that was #9 on Duke), come out and mistakenly line up for a...

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.

I'm not touching that from across the paint. Too marginal/too much of a guess.

Although in saying that, I'm certain I've blown plays like that...probably this year. It happens.

Yea, it was going to take something close to assault for me to toss him :D

Though based on the first few minutes, he was likely going to be a tool irrespective of this call.

This was my thinking after the fact. Thankfully the offending team still won by 40, though the coach was a tool for much of the game

He suggested it fell under unsporting behavior, which clearly covers a wide variety of actions. It's tough because not every tech worthy offense is going to be explicitly covered.

I didn't have a chance before it was reported, and I wasn't entirely certain he was in the wrong. And I'm not going to overrule a partner unless I'm sure.
