The NCAA needs to make or change a rule that has to do with officials checking the clock time in the final minutes of a game.
It's happened in many games this season, tournament, and in the Mich. vs Kansas game. Kansas had no timeouts and possession. When the officials took nearly 3 to 4 minutes to check the clock, Bill Self was allowed a free timeout and a chance to draw up a play. It's not fair if a team is out if timeouts and that is allowed.
Imagine if Self had drawn up a magical game-winning play.
The teams should be kept on the court under the supervision of an official and no contact with the coach unless an official timeout is called.
I don't know the rule, but it needs to change.
It happened the other night with 2 seconds left in the OSU game. OSU hit a three to take the lead and the refs stopped the clock to check the replay to confirm it was a three, The dude was three feet outside the line! There was an opposing player between him and the three-point line! It's a load of crap.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
On that play the refs were checking for time on the clock, not whether it was a three....regardless, to U2's point, there's a flaw when a team with no time outs gets to "huddle up" while the refs, for all practical purposes, interfer with the game flow.
The same argument could be made for the 60 seconds coaches get with their players after someone fouls out.
I was watching the game with my dad and younger brother last night, and I said the exact same thing. If they are going to review, then they need to leave the players on the court.
