YMTC: Block/Charge/No Call

September 21, 2017

Sam Subby of YouTube routinely posts excellent high definition clips of basketball plays from all over FIBA. You'll also find them posted on the Basketball Referee Society with open-ended questions for you to give your opinion. It often seems like that page makes its living from Sam Subby's content and makes me wonder if they are managed by the same person.  🤔


Personally I see this play as a no-call. The defender oversold what I believed was marginal contact that didn't really have an impact on the rest of the play. 


Look at the reaction of the red coach: laying off the officials and continuing to instruct. Great respect for the call and the game.
