- Posted by wmarti- Posted by NCSU72- Posted by Hokie 94Glad your eyes saw more than mine in regard to Green talking 4 steps. BS. He was beaten a few times on his arms and no calls. Don't make any excuses for your beloved school.Okay. Here's the explanation. NCSU pushed the ball inside and the Hokies played hard defense. The Hokies shot a lot of uncontested jump shots and NCSU played little if any defense.- Posted by NCSU72
Just saw a replay of the VT free throws on ESPN to end regulation. ESPN said it was an illegal play -- the Hokie who got the rebound and put back left his position before the VT player shot and missed the 2nd free throw. 2 points. Game tied. Overtime. No call.
And then, there's this:
Most of you will be able to count the 4 steps Green takes while holding the ball. No call. 2 points for VT.
ACC officiating is not very good regardless of which team wins. It's that simple.
Those 2 beers and 1 scotch you mentioned in another post must have made it difficult for you to count. Green clearly takes 4 steps with the ball in his hands to the basket. The video is even in slow motion -- come on, Hokie -- you're better than that. The basket counted. As did the illegal tip in to end the regulation game.
And, again, to bad for those of you don't know enough about basketball to understand the free throw differential. In addition to the difference created by NCSU playing an inside offensive game against a very physical VT defense and VT a very effective outside jump shot offensive game there were all of the "intentional" fouls hoping the NCSU players would miss -- don't know how many, but there were a lot.
Were the refs awful? Yes. Does the free throw differential make sense anyway? Yes. I was there -- VT was very rough under the NCSU basket and a lot of it didn't get called -- otherwise the VT team would have fouled out.
he actually took just 3 steps...but a travel none the less.
It was four steps from the point where he last dribbled. Here's the video:
He missed the shot and State rebounded it. So no harm done. But it wasn't even up for debate. The dude traveled horribly and the refs didn't call anything. This is how a team can overcome poor officiating -- the refs cannot put the ball in the basket for a team. But had he made the shot, it's two points that shouldn't have been.
Hans, even as a Carolina fan, surely you see where that traveling no-call was a very bad miss by the refs. That's all I'm saying here.
