    I never said I never do that. I said I'm not doing that NOW. And I wasn't. I wanted to know what happened exactly. I even said it all worked out the same, because either way, Scott only made one of two free throws.

    I now think the ref handled this correctly. He threw the ball to Scott prematurely (while the Clemson player was walking toward the lane.)

    it was clearly the refs fault, but we shouldn't wait around for an apology from the league.... for, we know how that works.

    Well, he did throw him the ball. Scott doesn't hold the ball long on free throws. A dude like that is focused on one thing only -- the rim. There's no way to know for sure if he even noticed the ref.

    Scott Wood really walks on thin ice with refs...he gives a lot of dirty looks and stares them down after almost every foul on him...I think that he will pick up a T this year probably at the worst time for the Pack

    I just watched it on ESPN3.com and you're right. The Clemson player was walking toward the lane and was inside the 3-pt arc when the ref prematurely threw Wood the ball. He immediately tried to retrieve it so the Clemson player could get in place when Scott shot that free throw.

    If it happens Saturday we will have all the resources of ESPN to answer the question for us. Good discussion, I did not know what happened or why.

    Just rewatched it on watchespn - the referee gave wood the ball but hadn't cleared the lane yet - wood received the ball and shot all in one motion - basically shooting over the refs head - the other ref stepped in and said something to wood - I am guessing wood was trying to get Clemson on a violation

    I don't know the rule off hand but I think the ref gives a signal to the player - usually holding up 1 and 1 or 2 shots AFTER he gives the player the ball and clears the lane indicating it is ok to shoot - wood was obviously taking a quick shot -not sure why -
