Looked like a million other dunks.
I also disagree with the call - at the speed Casey was traveling - I think you have to swallow the whistle for the sake of safety.
What about Coach Donavon in the huddle immediately afterwards...he was doing some pretty good barking..!!!
I would like to see him slash with ferocity, like he used to do, without fouling.
He should get some chances to do that on Saturday.
I agree but this has a lot to do with how teams are playing him.
Silly call. I agree he was slowing his momentum to get vertical movement instead of horizontal. The pull gets him vertical. I would rather he got the tech and not get hurt. I knew what the call was because I am pretty sure Billy was going ballistic on the sideline when the whistle blew.
It is right up there with the post-touchdown celebration. The interpretation is in the eye of the official. Personally, I want a ref to give pause before blowing the whistle. Look and see whether the player is either drawing undue attention to themselves or showing up the other team. I thought he held on because he would have otherwise flown into the basket/glass and maybe hurt himself. Warning first and then start calling them if other incidents occur.
I also thought that there were too many fouls called on both sides. They need to go home.
I thought the game was pretty well called until the later part of the second half. Sure look like the refs were doing their best to keep UCLA in the game...to no avail. I agree with you though, 10 times better than what we saw in the SECT.
Wasn't that Casey's 5th foul? How come he came back into the game?
It was BS for sure. He was running full speed when he dunked and if he didn't stop himself the way he did he would have landed poorly.
Yeah, I thought so, too. They announced with like 10 or 12 minutes left in the game that Prather had 4 fouls, then said he fouled out after the dunk, but he didn't leave the game. I'm assuming the announcers had it wrong.
The stats on CNNSI say four fouls.
Please someone, just dial 9-1-1 cause if I ever dunk a basketball I will have hurt myself.
Technical fouls like that do not go down as a personal. It's 2 shots and then move along.
He pulled himself up a little, but they should have let it go. He's done the same thing before and it wasn't called. I think the refs called it because it could have been construed as him making a statement in a game that was won, aka rubbing it in.
I've seen Prather and Young both warned at least once each for pulling up on the rim like that this season. Casey definitely pulled himself up pretty hard on that one. It's one thing to hang on to slow your momentum, but he really used the rim to swing himself up higher. Part of it was his momentum but I think it wasn't as crazy a call as everyone is making it out to be.
Since I never could dunk, I thought it was the right call. He was showing up all the littler people.
he just needs to play smarter...
whether he pulld up/swung on it or not, it was just unnecessary to call at that point of the game
That's the NBA rule. Pretty sure that in college/high school a Tech counts against your PF total.
Edit: Actually just looked this up, only Class A will count towards the total. Hanging on the rim is a Class B, so it didn't count against him.
I think he got the T due to the pull up and the loud yell that went with it. Had he only pulled up and not yelled, he probably doesn't get the T.
