calling that ball out on morietti when the impetus is so clearly on the uva player is a real bastardization of the spirit of basketball and must be called out

All they have to do is limit the replay review to 30s and no slow motion. Takes care of the obvious misses and eliminates the over analyzing

that classic scenario where one guy clearly knocks it out of bounds with absolutely zero question, but when you slow it down 1000x you can see the guy who knocked it away wasnt technically the last one with his hand on the ball. Lmao stupid rear end poo poo

a serious conflation of rules as written vs rules as intended

how could you even write the rules to be fair and not subjective other than "last touched"

but what can we do about it now. uva wins and had all the luck tonight

My uncle is a UVA grad, has no kids, and is dealing with his wife, pretty much the only human he likes to deal with regularly, having early onset dementia.

I'm so happy for him. :unsmith:

Like if they didn't have review would a single UVA fan have complained about the call on the floor? There was absolutely no indication it was off Tech until they slowed it down frame by frame. It's so dumb and pointless

Overturning that was dumb as hell even if it was technically right. Still no guarantee tech would have gone on to win, but it definitely swung momentum.
