When Virginia got that wide open three in the corner right before regulation ended, I had flashbacks of our game against St Bona. Only difference was UVA made the shot

The finger tip replay might have been the worst application of official review in history. Not an exaggeration.

At his press conference as the new coach here Uncle Sodaberger said he was shooting for the national championship here and asked, “Why not here?”

Glad the program progressed since then...when the head of the university can’t even pronounce the name of the new coach at the press conference, that’s not a good sign...

It was a great review and call reversal!

completely agree,   if they are going to use the replay gotta make the call when warranted.

let's see a show of hands:   how many people as they were watching that overtime and the 13 for 13 free throws thought to themselves, "i sure wish our billikens could shoot free throws like that!"

 

congratulations to brad soderberg.

You realize @JohnnyJumpUp doesn’t actually believe that right? He hit a futures bet. And now we know why you think it was a good review. It was a joke. 100% of the time that call goes TTU’s way. Not a single referee would make that call in real time. That’s a complete mockery of instant replay. It should be used to fix missed calls not find reasons to overturn them. It was an objectively poor application of replay.

I thought it went off Tech in real time so the replay got it right. I’ve seen that same situation go against the defender hundreds of times and the refs usually miss it. Props to the refs for overturning it.

Here we go......

I didn't see it, the game started too late.  Such a bummer because my 2 older boys wanted to watch the game but could only stay up until half time.

You would be crying if it happened to SLU and you know it. Don't be a condescending a$$. It's a rough look.

Lol no way you thought that! It should go against the defender every time, should we go to the replay on every out of bounds now? Because after that replay it should probably go to the defense every time.

My wife and I said the same thing. All this talent on the floor and the only thing I was jealous of was how well they shot free throws.

I won my bet Saturday and I came back saying that I got lucky on the missed double dribble and felt bad for Auburn. You have no idea what you’re talking about.

False.

I’ve seen balls tipped by the defender slide off the fingertips of the offensive player many times but it’s subtle and often missed. The same thing used to frustrate me in high school when I knew it went off the other player but the refs didn’t catch it. Seeing this for 50 years, I just figured it was a play refs couldn’t get right and that was that.
