Haven't seen and felt excitement from a last second shot like that since Ronald Lewis over Xavier a handful of years ago. Major props to Aaron Craft for having the self confidence to make a shot that was there to take... BUT I noticed something I haven't heard anyone mention yet... When that ball drained the rim and the crowd, players, etc started to go nuts.. did anyone else notice the OSU player on the end of the bench jump out of his seat and run onto the court before any timeout was taken? I'm not sure of his name, because he really never plays, but he started running out onto the court.. by a good 20 feet off the bench.. I just thought we maybe got lucky there, because the way I understand the rule, any player(s) that come off the bench onto the court during the course of play, is an automatic technical foul 2 shots and the ball out of bounds. Am I wrong in my observation and understanding of this rule? That would have been a crappy time to light us up for a lame tech, but was that not the correct call? Anyway... so glad nothing was called and again, what an exciting game and fantastic finish. Go Bucks.

It's one of those things that happens all the time in Bball and football games. Rarely if ever gets called. Sometimes you have teams already starting to shake hands with several seconds left on the clock. IF ISU had tried to inbound the ball and the player got in the way somehow then I could see it.
I don't think it was a missed call. The refs may have stopped play as soon as it was in to review the shot and see how much time was left, I'm not sure on that or not.
We see last second shots happen often where teams start to leave the bench only to have .2 seconds added to the clock.
Probably would have taken a major "set of stones" for a ref to call that one.......if anything it should give Matta something to talk about along wiht the Scott stupid technical!
Watch it again and pay attention to the ref standing near the OState bench. The ball goes through the net and that ref stops play for an official's time out. No tech as live action was stopped.
"Ohhhh, man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take state."
No. The Iowa State coach calls timeout immediately after the shot goes in. But hey, let's keep digging up reasons to disqualify the win.
Bench thought game over; so did I.
Legit question, that I prefaced with how awesome of a shot and Buckeye win that was.... But hey, thanks for your lack of reading comprehension & the down vote, ace.
BigJimmie, agreed, the ref would have needed a police escort outta UD arena if he called that. I wonder if that is only a pro basketball rule only?
If you look from the ISU angle, their coach called timeout the moment the ball went through the hoop. There was no call to be made .
The clock stops automatically at that point after a basket. There would have been a time review regardless. Thompson immediately pulled the guy back anyway. Happens all the time. Besides, if the refs were "cheating" for us, why would they call a T?
BTW, did I mention Charles Barkley is an ass?

Thanks for the clarification on the rule, I didn't know clock automatically stops after the basket is good. I was just curious (and nervous) when I saw our kid run off the bench right as Aaron hit that killer shot.
north till ya smell it, west till ya step in it.
+1 for a legit question
When everyone runs out...we run in. Support your firemen.
