After officials missed LSU’s basket interference on the game-winning tip-in and were unable to review it per NCAA rules, the SEC is doing its part to make sure it doesn’t happen again. According to Kyle Tucker, the SEC will lobby for instant replay in game-ending situations, such as goaltending and basket interference; in fact, they’ve already talked to the NCAA about it.
As John Calipari said on Tuesday night, it looks like Kentucky being screwed over is going to lead to another rule change.
“It’s another one — do you remember we lost in the Final Four when there was a goal, a shot clock violation and they said it was not reviewable and then they changed the rule to say, why would you want to lose a game on a shot clock violation and it’s easy to go check? Well, this one easy to go check, too. Just go check it. Why would you not — why would that not be reviewable? So we’re like Wilt Chamberlain; we change rules. I don’t know.”
