Contrary to a lot of comments in the Twitter stream, it looks like the bench was the ones that were initially storming the court, not the fans, Hence the technical.
The technical foul call still sucks. The players were just excited because they though hat they won the game. Just clear the floor and then play out the final second or whatever it was.
It was players, managers, and staff, which interfered with the opponents in bounds play. In theory, they could have launched a desperation shot, but the interference prevented that. Helluva way to lose, but the right call.
I disagree, the refs should not decide the outcome of the game, just like when they usually just let them play and don’t call many fouls during the final seconds of the game. Again just clear the floor and then give VCU their chance to get off their desperation shot.
Although I can agree it was a terrible way to end the game, you can imagine Calipari, Pitino, some Wall Street hedge fund manager, or a tax lawyer advising his players on the bench to scram onto the court in the event of a last-second shot. “That way we can have time to set up our defense against a desperation attempt after the referees have stopped play and cleared the court.”
But it would also give the offense more time to set up a better play to get the desperation shot off after the court is cleared.
Here’s another instance in a UCLA/Oregon game where announcer Bill Walton goes ballistic about a too-early court storming. In this case, the refs didn’t call a technical (even though that’s what Walton felt was appropriate), because, as the play-by-play guy says UCLA hadn’t in bounded the ball (not sure if that is an accurate interpretation of the rule or not).
How’s this for finding a strange way to lose a game (or more than one in this case).
