    I don't know if the refs had another angle but they certainly came to a decision super quick..... Screenshot_20200121-230920_Twitter.jpg

    I think it was a tough call to make.

    You really need the previous screen shots to determine it either way.

    Not shocked they overturned it. This is CBK. I expect that.

    I thought it was out of his hand in time. Tough call, but I don’t think it was scrutinized enough.

    This is how close it was, this was almost exactly when the light came on, you can see it’s red.

    Agree with ora, think it was just barely on his fingertips at the 0.0. Good comeback but the bad turnovers (the Lewis one at the end was a killer but there were many before) and poor rebounding caused the loss. Shouldn’t have come down to the last half second inbound.

    Good call, bad result. That T and quick score after killed us.

    That's about as close as it gets, but the tip of his finger was still on the ball. 0.1 seconds away from tying it up...after down 79-69 with 1:11 left.

    Which begs the question - why don't we play that style more often?

    Looked to be a good call.

    I thought the half second ended kind of quickly, so I reviewed the slo-mo replay a few times to see if it looked like the clock started early. That, too, appeared to my eye to be done correctly by the clock operator.

    I guess the only thing left to check is whether the 0.5-second runtime was actually 0.5 seconds. Maybe their clock runs fast. :cool: :(

    Did that shot really take longer than Derek Fisher's catch and turnaround jumper that beat the Kings with 0.4 seconds left? :confused:

    If it had went to OT, wonder if we would have kept pressing and going uptempo? Or would we have went back to our regular O and D? Guessing the latter.

    Can anybody say with certainty that his hand was touching the ball in that image? I don't think it provides that level of precision.

    Games shouldn't be decided by .1 of a second. A ridiculous call. Is the clock really that precise?

    It really does appear that we don't practice pressing or transition offense very often. I noted earlier in the year that White was too micromanaging to play this style. He was so quick early in the season to say we were a bad pressing team, when we hadn't even seen it in a game. It seems extra emphasis in practices would improve those issues. It would just be refreshing to see us try and press before desperation time. LSU pressed us in the first half, we weren't prepared for it, and I believe that's when they erased an 8 pt deficit. I realize Bassett was hurt and KBJ was sick, but it would be nice to see us try and speed LSU up next time we play them since they only play 6 guys.

    Pressing works best when it is unexpected. I don’t understand why more teams don’t randomly press when an opportunity is there.

    Didn't decide the game anyway. They shot 31 free throws to our 11. They took 61 shots and shot 14 3s. Of the 46 shots that they took from 2pt range at least 40 of them came from within the paint. They beat us by pounding the ball into the paint which every respectable program knows is the key to beating us because while they are taking high percentage shots, we are settling for long jumpers with 8 seconds left on the shot clock.

    When we were winning, we were playing up tempo and not running the clock down every possession to singe digits. I thought we had turned the page as far as tempo was concerned. When we made that furious comeback, all of our shots were coming with only a few seconds off of the shot clock (between 22-25 seconds left). Generally, once our offense gets under 18 on the clock we get less than desirable shots.

    White is always going to revert back to his habits, good or bad...which means little pressing and lack of tempo mostly...4.5 years bears that out
