    Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    Look at this video and see this call that gave West Des Moines Valley the game. I have no dog in the fight, but goodness this was bad. Foul was called under the hoop. Here is a link.

    There was definitely a small push in the back when the ball was in the air, but nothing to warrant a foul call.

    There was a shove, but shouldn't the shot have counted since it was already in the air?

    I think it did, and then Valley got free throws that won the game, that's what the article makes it sound like anyways.

    Re: Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    I don't really know the rules on something like that specifically, if the ball had hit the rim and they were going for a rebound I wouldn't be upset at the push in the back being called. I don't know if/how the shot being made changes things.

    Re: Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    Yuck. Feel bad for the kid who made the shot to tie it up.

    There was a small push, but I don't know if that is really calle unless maybe the guy who was shoved was in rebounding position on a miss and didn't get it.

    Re: Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    I'm surprised the ref called it, but putting two hands on a guy like LeGrand did is a definite no no. It was a foul I think.

    Edit: And there was displacement.

    Horrible call. IMO, any kind of a call under the basket has to be pretty blatant. If a kid wants to get a call, he needs to actually be physical and get position.

    Re: Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    Now that I watch it again, I think that guy just likes pushing people. He pushed a guy at the top of the key, pushed a guy while he was posting up, and then pushed a guy while the ball was in the air.

    I still think that's a really weak foul call.

    Re: Horrific foul call in 4A Boys game

    The high school divisions in Iowa always confuse me. I always think 4A are the smallest schools. In Wisconsin D1 is the biggest, all the way down to D5 for basketball and D7 for football


    You probably think I'm at a disadvantage, I promise you I'm not

    You don't call that with 1 second left.

    It was a foul, IMO, but given its State and Dubuque Senior just hit a great shot to send it to OT, you swallow your whistle and send it to OT.
