Brandon Triche, Jordan Morgan Star In "Charges Are For Customers"
Nobody can get this call right.
By James Carr April 07, 2013, 12:54 AM EST
Brandon Triche got past his man and drove into the lane during the final minute of Syracuse's Final Four loss to Michigan, and gave the referees and impossible task once Jordan Morgan slid two steps to his left: charge or block.
Take however many replays you need, it doesn't matter. No one seems to know what this call should have been despite all the slow-motion replays and camera angles. All we know is that the refs called a charge, Triche left the game with his fifth foul and Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange are going home.
This needs to stop. That is not a charge. Ever. Never ever.— Zach Dillard (@Zach_Dillard) April 7, 2013
gameball should go to the ref who called that bogusness a charge when dude's feet were CLEARLY not set.— romeo echo (@CCharisma420) April 7, 2013
Refs screwed Syracuse, THE FIX IS IN! A lane violation and a charge?! You gotta be joking.— Ryan Rice (@Ryan_Rice12) April 7, 2013
I feel bad for Triche, last college game and you foul out by getting a charge.— Todd Crivello (@toddiikinz) April 7, 2013
Per Twitter, that charge call was both spot on and fucking terrible.— sir broosk (@celebrityhottub) April 7, 2013
That was not a charge. Aaron Craft doesn't even think that was a charge.— Chris Hagan (@ChrisHaganTV) April 7, 2013
Charge! Solid call.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) April 7, 2013
Block. He slid underneath him. And that's not allowed unless you're Aaron Craft. RT @jonsol: Charge or block?— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) April 7, 2013
We started the week with the Ed Rush controversy and ended it with questionable whistles in the closing seconds of both Final Four games.— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) April 7, 2013
College basketball will get the block/charge call right the day my mother figures out how to text. #AintGonnaHappen— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) April 7, 2013
Twitter seems to be in support of the charge call. But, guys, he slid into that one. It was a block.— Travis Haney (@TravHaneyESPN) April 7, 2013
