I tuned in to the ASU-USC game after the NBA All Star game and watched the last few minutes of what was a pretty close and competitive game. That was until the SFPTR decided to make another block-charge call in favor of ASU.
Now, this call wasn't as bad as the DC-Pendergraph play, but it was still an easy block charge. As Hackett drove to the basket McMillian came over but was moving backwards and even airborne when Hackett and him collided. The outside official blew his whistle and raised his hand to call a block, but the over excited baseline ref started his victory trot and called a charge. Instead of getting together to talk it over like good referees, the outside refs just stood there like an idiot with his hand up and then just put it down.
Timmy was irate and ran on the court and gave the refs a piece of his mind. Now, I am all for SC and Timmy looking bad, but on this occassion (and given how our ASU game ended) I was actually happy that he called the refs out for being so terrible. Just another day and another terrible SFPTR performance.
p.s. Is it too early to start the "ASU gets every call" meme? jk
