    Syracuse - UNCA lane violation...

    ... actually was a lane violation. Per the NCAA rulebook, Rule 9, S.1, A.2(g):

    Players not in a legal marked lane space shall remain behind the freethrow line extended and behind the three-point field-goal line until the ball
    strikes the ring, flange or backboard, or until the free throw ends.
    So that's that.

    However, per Twitter, NCAA officials coord. John Adams says he would have given the ball to UNC-Asheville on out of bounds play...

    That explains it then... I've just never seen a lane violation like that. I'm used to watching for players' feet on the key moving in before the shooter releases the ball.

    At least the refs didn't leave a 3 ptr on the board between a 2 shot foul because"they can't take points off the board".

    Yeah it's a strange rule, never seen it called before so I had to look that up. Make sense though since it would be almost impossible to box him out without a foul on the offense.

    The problem is that is never is called and then BAM it's called after a few other cheap calls. Refs need to splain.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    What you normally watch for happened on the FT as well.

    Exactly, if it's not fishy than we'll see it again in the tournament and a few times every season.

    I think anyone would have to admit that 2-6 points were swung away from UNC-A at the end of this game. Enough of these that the result is clouded imho.

    If the rules are suddenly laser sharp for obscure lane violations, you have to argue the five second call should be whistled as well.

    Don't forget the non-call on the goaltend against Syracuse that did not called in the 2nd half.

    I hope the refs dont decide the game today, wanting to see a UConn/kentucky matchup

    Out of bounds givin to Cuse instead of Ashville when it should have been Ashvilles ball.
