Basketball games move at a fast pace, but not faster than video.
Here’s the two controversial calls from the 72-65 Syracuse win over UNC Asheville that possibly changed the outcome of the game, but didn’t really change the outcome of the game. Got it?
John Adams, the NCAA director of men’s basketball officiating said, “On the lane violation, the inside player, I think it was number 4, his foot in the lane before the shooter releases the free throw. That is a correct call.”
Adams did say that the official did make a mistake on the second missed call.
End of the game tip. This call was obviously wrong and the officials didn’t even try to correct it.
This lane violation was the correct call! No arguments will be accepted.

Before I start getting hate comments, yes, I do know that there were other things that determined the outcome of the game.
