Cant fault UVA though. They played excellent including the clutch 3 pointer to force OT. Exciting game to watch.

It got zero mention on the broadcast and no replay. Even live it liked like a horrible bail out call.

No bias from me (if anything, anti UVa), but I don't feel any of the calls changed the outcome of the game.

That was an exciting 'ship though, especially after the boring first half - probably the best one since either Duke/Wisconsin in 2015 or Louisville/Michigan in 2013 (biased here though). Always good to see an OT in the Finals too.

Very entertaining game. And completely against the media narrative that it was going to "ruin" college baseketball and be a 44-40 game.

I wanted UVA to win (had them in 2 brackets), but replay in needs to be fixed (in pretty much every sport). I have 2 suggestions that I think would work well. 1) There is a fixed time to look at the play (60 or 90 seconds). If you can't decide w/in that time, the call stands. 2) You are only able to use "normal" slo-mo replays. None of this frame by frame BS.

Also (and I have been saying this for 20 years), but can we get the game to tip at 7:30 CDT?

This is a great suggestion and should be implemented in all sports.

I'm guessing the amount of time that the refs are actually looking at the replay isn't actually much longer than that. It just takes more time to walk over to the screen, queue up the replay etc. Hell half the time they review a play it seems like they spend most of the time adjusting the game clock after they've made their decision.

Well, your username certainly suggests you know what you're talking about on this subject.

And if they keep looking super-closely at balls that are knocked out of someone's hand, they should change the official rule a little, IMO. I would guess that at least half the balls that are pushed/pulled out of someone's grip actually roll off the offensive player's finger tips as the ball exits the hands. Without slo-mo, these are almost always called out-of-bounds on the defense.

They should make it something like: If the force of the defensive player causes the ball to exit the hands of the offensive player and go out-of-bounds, regardless of whether or not it last contacts the offensive player's finger tips, possession is awarded to the offense, assuming the ball doesn't leave the hand and come back and touch it again or touch another body part of the ball handler.

Maybe that opens it up to much interpretation.

Yes, that's definitely the problem. And we've had this for a while that we just let the refs make the "right" call, but now replay shows that the "right" call doesn't match the actual written rules. This is all over in sports, like when a guy slides aggressively into second and the fielder isn't touching the bag as a result, and is called out (nobody ever argues, either). Or tons of holds and PI in football - there's a written rule, but the ref "knows" what PI actually is and the written rule isn't perfect.

Replay means you have to tighten up the written rules to match and the judgment just becomes a different part of the game. Not always going to be better of course.
