The Kentucky Wildcats’ loss to LSU was gut-wrenching, and it may lead to a rule change that prevents a similar ending from happening again. According to Kyle Tucker of The Athletic, the SEC has already spoken with the NCAA about expanding the use of replay in end-of-game situations, such as the missed basket interference call that allowed LSU to escape with a 73-71 win. It’s unfortunate that such a bad call had to ruin a great matchup between two top-25 teams, but if there’s anything good to come of it, it would be a making sure it never happens again. Being able to review basket interference would certainly help that. It’s just too fast of a bang-bang call for refs to call accurately 100% of the time. That’s why replay exists; to help prevent human error from costing a team dearly. It makes too much sense to incorporate basket interference into being reviewable with replay. – Jason Marcum, aseaofblue – Read More
