You Make the Call - Foul during Inbound play

With 2.7 seconds left in OT, both teams in the 1-and-1 and my UD Flyers leading tOSU 88-87, tOSU comes out of their last time-out and lines up for an inbound play that may or may not win the game.

UD comes out in a man-to-man defense but leaves inbounding Buckeye Cam Williams alone so they can have an extra defender -the Greek Geek - to chase the ball and defend a quick shot.

As the trail official, Joey DeMayo, hands tOSU's Williams the ball, Ja'Sean Tate rolls to the top of the key looking for the pass. Guarded tightly by an overly physical Trey Landers, Tate reverses his cut and Williams turns his attention to elsewhere....but can't find anyone open.

With a sold out Arena on its feet screaming lowdly for both teams, it's darn near impossible to hear anything on the court. Confusion abound, and with the inbound count at 1.....2......3......forward Micah Potter attempts to free up Tate by stepping sideways into the path of Landers. With no time-outs left, Williams desperately passes the ball toward Tate, who catches the ball just inside the 3-point line and immediately turns to shoot the potential game winning shot as Landers, leading with his inside shoulder, runs into and falls over the extended knee of Potter. As center official Chad Barlow blows his whistle and raises his right fist - signaling a foul - Tate, with 1.5 seconds left, gets off a shot.

With the ball now in the air and all eyes following it, the Greek Geek jumps above the rim and swats the shot away. Lead official DJ Carstensen, unable to hear the first whistle due to the noise levels, blows his whistle and signals 'goal-tending'. DeMayo, hearing both whistles and anticipating a defensive foul on Landers, turns to the scorer's table and signals the shot to count!....with UD fans going ballistic over DeMayo's call and tOSU fans doing the same, UD head coach Anthony Grant is seen jumping up and down pointing toward Landers, who is on the ground repeatedly pointing at Barlow as if to say 'what about him? what about me?'.

With >16,000 cheers and boos reigning down on the officiating crew from fans of both teams, DeMayo calls for a mid-court huddle to figure out WTF just happened begs his partners to breakdown what just happened so that he, the great Joey DeMayo, can make the call!

Or, in this case, I think it would be easier to put it to a vote.

Good luck.

King Rollo...OUT!
