    Not absurd at all. What is absurd is the K-State player didn't know the rules.

    I think it's a stupid rule and shouldn't be a foul, but I can't blame the refs for calling it.

    Re: Most absurd foul ever

    Stupid rule and even dumber that if he would have done it 2 seconds earlier it wouldn't have been a technical. Apparently you can't do it within 20 minutes of game time and he did it with 19:58 on the clock.

    Lol, so any time a coach leaves the box(20 times per game) they should also call a T. Give a warning like every other case and call it good. Ridiculous that this gets called in a tourney game.

    Or perhaps the players and coaches should familiarize themselves with the rule book.

    Rules may be ridiculous, but they're still rules.

    Re: Most absurd foul ever

    I'm not sure I'd even want to take those free throws if I were the Kentucky coach. So we've seen Kansas score a field goal during a deadball and we've seen Kentucky score a point before the game.

    I'm sure North Carolina Central University will get a break like this sometime, because it's all just random right?

    Sounds like they got hosed for the next 40:00 of play too. Let me go find my shocked face fast.

    Re: Most absurd foul ever

    stupid rule, stupid enforcement. :02 after the rule comes into play? What, was the ref sitting there watching them dunk, waiting for the clock to cross the 20:00 mark? stupid. stupid. stupid. I would feel really bad about myself if I made that call. It cheapens the whole game.

    Re: Most absurd foul ever

    I have to say I'm happy with the refs in the tourney. They know and call the rules. Not like conf season.

    Looked like it didn't matter. Not going to beat UK scoring in the 40s.

    Since the warm ups at the beginning of the game are at the end of the court where the opponent finishes the game, a player could hang on the rim and bend it out of alignment so that their opponent had a wonky basket to shoot at in the end of the game. I get the rule but I think a warning would have sufficed since it wasn't the whole team out there doing it repeatedly.
