[QUOTE=crosscountry55;1037705]... Fomenting resistance via broadcast media is irresponsible and damages our profession. Sadly, it probably gets better ratings, too.

Interestingly, Cincinnati had this called against them in second half of a loss to Iowa on 12/21. Had most watchers puzzled because the official allowed a driving bucket and afterward called the flop...

Clever dribbler/shooter

Clever guy A1 is dribbling in the front court and just as he sees A2 about to set an illegal (late) screen on B1, he launches a shot. Shot is off, down goes B1. Shot goes in. Count bucket and assess...

So if there is no legitimate attempt made, would this not mean it's NOT ever a shooting foul? If team is in the bonus, it's a 1-and-1. But under no circumstances is it a two-shot (shooting) foul?

Odd sense of humor

What the heck was L doing coming off the baseline waving off the shot?

Presumably this was a pretty big game and L doesn't know to at least conference with his crew?

Is there any way they do NOT find this woman? She must be known to other fans who were there. Interested to see how this will play out. Shame on that entire group if nothing comes of it.
