It may be different in college, but in the NBA you can take a step or two, pause to smoke a cigarette, have a word with your coach, take breather on the bench for a few minutes and then make the shot and they will give it to you.

I am glad that folks can remember how continuation gets called.

Yeah, it looks to me like Worster wasn't fouled in the act of shooting. It looks like he knew he was going to get fouled, got fouled, then tried to put up a shot. The old Chris Paul move. Didn't work.Winning Team wrote: ↑December 5th, 2020, 9:31 pmI dont know what you are looking at? You are saying he had enough time for a bang bang play to happen before he got the shot off? He had the ball for like .3 seconds?
But it's bang-bang when a ref is sitting there in the chaos and it's happening in real life. I think it's not an objectively bad call.

Even funnier, the BYU player wanted to try and draw a foul. He flopped hard.

Trust me that in the Marriott center it would have been good.Mr. Sneelock wrote: ↑December 5th, 2020, 11:21 pmI guess we'll have to agree to disagree then. In my view, it was the right call, and though we can never know if it would have been called differently in a different universe with different teams and players, in my view, if it had been, it would have been the wrong call.SpectrumMagic wrote: ↑December 5th, 2020, 11:16 pmSneelock - I think we have all seen plenty of continuation calls in NCAA. Let’s be honest. If this is a big name team star or all conference player they get the call.
Also I think Rollie being a freshman played a part in the double T as well.
Different rules for different players - same could be said for life in general

Agree, Worster was not in the act of shooting when the foul occurred. Great heads up play by him to quickly get off a shot and make it though. Will serve him well at the next level... assuming he becomes the player we all want him to be.
