Another Final Four game, another controversial call in the final minute. Trailing 58-56 with the ball, Syracuse had a chance to tie the game with under 30 seconds to play. Senior Brandon Triche drove to the right, where he’d been having recent success, but Jordan Morgan slid over to try to draw the charge. It worked, Triche fouled out, and Syracuse lost a golden opportunity. The Orange had another change to tie late, but an odd play involving Trevor Cooney driving to the hoop when Syracuse trailed by three ultimately wound up being the team’s last possession. Michigan, led by freshman Mitch McGary’s monster game, is headed for the chance to play for a national title on Monday vs. Louisville. Here’s a GIF of the charge. Do you think Morgan got there in time?

  • The officiating was a bit inconsistent, but mostly they let things go. Otherwise Syracuse would have probably had their whole starting five fouled out rather than just the front court. Triche should have been called for a charge on a drive where he ran into McGary a bit earlier, but since McGary is so big and didn't fall down when contact was made, the refs decided the foul was on him (McGary), even though Triche caused the contact, so the refs are mostly just guessing out there and hoping they don't mess up too bad. The team that played better won the game.
