Uconn Eeks Out OT Win Against Memphis, Thanks To The Worst Out-Of-Bounds No-Call We’ve Ever Seen

The Huskies can thank both Shabazz Napier (34 points on 10-21 shooting) and whatever ocular affliction these referees suffer from, for their 86-81 overtime victory today in Hartford. That’s because Lasan Kromah was clearly standing out of bounds when he “saved” an errant rebound with 3:28 left to play. Like, he was standing in the first row when he tossed it back in. Hey, sometimes it’s hard for officials to get a good angle on the action, especially something that happens on the peripheries of the court. Or off the court — like this one.

We’ll go out on a limb and say the sheer fact that he was standing upright, four feet out-of-bounds when he made the save, serves as ample evidence it should be Memphis ball.

    That play is no where as clean cut as the author suggests. Note one ref is looking right at the play. Plus the angle of the camera from above (not as good as the refs view) would note be conclusive because doesn’t show if the player was in the air or on the ground.

    Sounds like a disgruntled Memphis fan.

  • Henry Carlyle Acosta

    36 UCONN FTs to 9 for Memphis. I’d say Memphis fans have reasonably fair grounds to be disgruntled.

    There are many photos and shots of this, or just hit rewind on your tv, this no-
    call was totally inexplicable, there is NO angle that makes is look questionable.

    not only is that really not that conclusive or awful (he was jumping forward while upright, it’s pretty close to call), there’s also 3:30 left in overtime and uconn won by more than a possession.
