The tech on Prather was a joke

    Yes - it was ridiculous. Not as bad as calling a tech on Wichita State for a dunk in pre-game warm ups, but bad nonetheless.

    Ridiculous call. I could not believe it. At first I thought they had called some sort of pushing foul close to where we inbounded the ball.

    My only theory is that the ref was trying to take an UCLA cheerleader home. Can't blame him on that one.

    If the game had been closer at that point, some sh!t at my house may have been destroyed.

    In that case, clearly justified.

    The tech must have been because he dunked and didn't lay it in, almost as if his dunk was us RUTS/unsportman like or something cause he did NOT hang onto the rim for an excessive amount of time.

    I would have to see it again, but I think it was the right call. You can't lift yourself up after a dunk unless there is someone underneath you. It definitely wasn't excessive and they probably could have not called it, but I don't have a problem with them doing so. Obviously the situation of the game had something to do with them blowing the whistle because we were just about in celebration mode...

    If it had been a really close game, I would've been livid, but fortunately, it didn't really matter at that point. We still won by double digits.

    The ref was starting to blow the whistle before Casey reached the basket, it was a bullcrap "poor ucla" call.

    Can't wait for robot refs.

    I don't even think hanging on the rim should be a tech automatically. Obviously there is a point where you can excessively hang on the rim and delay the game, but it should not be an automatic tech. I had a problem with a few calls the refs made, specifically a drive by anderson where he appeared to initiate contact with Prather, who was letting him go by, that resulted in an and-one. I also recall a stationary, hands straight up Patric Young being whistled for a foul.

    I have less of a problem with these types of calls, and a much bigger problem with the 'flagrant 1' elbow calls, like the one against PY vs. Albany or Scottie vs. Tenn.

    It was for him pulling himself up, not hanging. However, the way he dunked it, he could have possibly fallen funny if he didn't slow himself down by pulling himself up.

    Complete BS. Otherwise, I thought the game was called pretty fairly though. It was a masterpiece compared to the refreeing in the SEC Championship game.

    Yeah this is what I think. It wasn't technically a bad call, but in these gray area judgement calls, I think they can just leave it alone. Better safe than sorry for Prather.

    Of course I didn't like that call but the only one I can remember that really bothered me was the last personal on Chris. I didn't see anything to warrant that one.

    Yea, I agree if you ever dunk a basketball going full speed you could seriously hurt yourself if you don't slow down your momentum somehow. I think it was a combination of the slight (I mean ever so slight hang) and the emphatic scream that subconsciously prompted the ref to blow the whistle. At that stage of the game, the refs need to just let it go and get the game over with.

    He did lift himself up but nothing more than a lot of people do on a fast break. It was kind of the right call, but not one generally called and kind of pointless anyways.

    Hope it doesn't change anything in Casey's game. Want him to dunk with ferocity every time.

    We had one a few years ago that was equally as terrible. I think it was Yeguete. Someone was underneath him so he hung onto the rim so he didn't fall on the guy and possibly hurt himself or the other guy, and the ref called the tech.
