Kansas came away with an exciting 108-96 overtime win over Iowa State on Monday night, but the victory has not come without questions. According to ESPN.com, the Big 12′s coordinator of officials said the final minute of regulation in the game is under review by the conference. The play that is believed to be in question came with five seconds remaining in regulation, when Kansas was trailing 90-88. Jayhawks guard Elijah Johnson drove to the lane and barreled through Iowa State forward Georges Niang. It appeared that Niang had his feet set, but no charging foul was called. Instead, Niang was called for a hold when Johnson missed the shot and the ball was loose on the floor. Naturally, Johnson went on to hit both free throws and send the game to overtime. Big 12 coordinator of officials Curtis Shaw watched the game but would not say if he thought the correct call was made. “We will handle the situation and approach the teams appropriately,” Shaw said. “We review every play and take the appropriate action.” As we know, officials miss calls all the time. There is no way for them to be in perfect position to make every call at all times, so that has to be taken into account when reviewing a play. However, Shaw noted that disciplinary action is warranted in some situations. Johnson also threw down this dunk at the end of the game, but later apologized. Had he not benefitted from a possible no-call at the end of regulation, he may not have had any reason to throw down a celebratory dunk in the first place.

  • I would love to hear comment from the Kansas coach about the officials.
  • How about Big 12 admits officiating errors throughout entire game, more against KU. Focusing on one call that actually was a good no-call as still photography clearly shows ISU player's knees bent/falling back before contact, so either a blocking foul or no call. Earlier, two ISU players clearly traveled, but no calls made, one grabbed ball while on his knees to then stand up and pass all w/o dribbling, and another rolls from his stomach to his back to then pass? KU's big called for charge when should was obvious blocking foul on ISU big moving under him while in the air; early moving screen called on KU big when replay shows no contact; ISU guard shoves KU player with forearm, but KU player called for the foul; KU big cleanly blocks ISU shot w/o any contact to ISU player, but is called for foul? KU Coach T'd w/o warning as given to Huggybear in West Virginia game last night. Also a quick 5 sec call on inbounds play agst KU and two very questionable traveling calls made agst KU, so multiple bad calls affecting the game in ISU's favor, and so wrong to fuel up fan base who are now threatening KU players and coach? During game, ISU player puts arm around ref to draw attn to basket interference replay on their jumbo-tron? And they still missed the call as was ISU player's arm in that net but refs waved off KU basket. Since when do arena's put those plays on their jumbo tron screens? Have never seen that done, only hightlight plays of the home team should be shown. What kind of frenzy were they trying to create with fans who don't have any basketball knowledge complaining of calls the entire game and now making death threats - shirts with "Breathe if you hate Kansas" - what kind of sportsmanship and class is that for a college? I have no problem with that dunk at the end of the game either - if up by 20 maybe? Crowd throwing things at KU players and yelling obcenities and no security to protect players? Big 12 should be looking at the things that really do need addressing? Atmosphere should be competitive but safe for the athletes, coaches, and fans.
