I thought it was a block from the first look. It looked like a bit of a hip thrust to initiate contact.

The endline angle proves that wrong. Easy PC from that look.

From this angle, it's hard hard to see how much contact is made/restriction/advantage gained. But doesn't look like a PC foul.

They likely didn't see the full play. Nothing about this is a common foul.

The potential for injury from plays like this is why the NCAA made simply hooking-and-holding a flagrant foul.

The hook and throw is much more dangerous, in my opinion. Very easy to tear up a shoulder that way, to say nothing of the impact on the floor.

Based solely on this one possession, I find it hard to believe that she hasn't been toeing the line between physical and dirty/dangerous play prior to this. If that is the case, she's gone.

If white ends up on the floor, I'm calling a foul every single time. As it is, it's probably 50/50 as the amount of contact is hard to judge.

I know this.

But in all of the videos I've seen regarding this POE, none of the plays look like this. Not sure I'd call this warding off since there is no defender there when he puts his arm out....

I know. But he can't rescind that foul.
I'm wondering if he would have a foul at all on second look.

This is a tough one, even on replay. A1 clearly doesn't see B1 and isn't really clearing space or warding him off. But, at the same time, his arm IS in motion so it's not quite as simple as B1 just...

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...
