NCAA Admits To Blown Goaltending Call During Northwestern-Gonzaga

But, Bulldogs forward Zach Collins went up to block the shot and stuck his hand through the rim to stop the basket. The referees missed that Collins had reached his hand all the way through the cylinder to block the shot and that goaltending should have been called.

The result was a sight that almost brought coach Chris Collins to tears when he first walked onto the court Thursday, and again later in the press conference following the dramatic win over Vanderbilt.

That's an automatic technical foul in any situation, but the coach really did have a reason to be upset. At a critical point in the second half of a very close game, official blew a call against Gonzaga that should have been interference.

Northwestern's shooting improved to 50 percent in the second half, a jump leading Wildcats scorer Bryant McIntosh said came from "playing desperate". Notably, Northwestern only averages 10.6 turnovers per game, but had already tallied 8 at halftime and 13 total for the game.

The Musketeers were led by Trevon Bluiett and his 29 points as they travel to San Jose next for an opportunity at the Elite Eight. "They delivered when we needed them to". Lumpkin is moving on, one of just two players on this roster who won't be back for the quest for back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2017-18. "Yes, I believe we had a great chance to win if the correct call was made".

Chicago Sun-Times reporter Steve Greenberg says the boy, 11-year-old John, is Northwestern Athletic Director Jim Phillips' son. It is in games and moments like these where Northwestern desperately needed Law to complete that package and find that consistency as a play-making, multi-talented individual offensive force this year. Collins followed by driving to the rim and converting 3-point plays on back-to-back possessions to give Gonzaga a 53-34 lead.

Sports are dumb. I'm hurt by the loss, mad a call was missed, bewildered by the arbitrariness of review rules, proud of Collins for fighting against a basketball injustice, and simultaneously frustrated at Collins for letting his emotions cost the team. Northwestern (24-12) rallied from a 21-point deficit in the second half, but ultimately couldn't fully overcome a sluggish start on offense. Then Vic Law and Scottie Lindsey slowly exited the court. "We've had the best atmosphere of the teams".

"Now I'll never have negative memories in this building", Bakamus said. A Northwestern fan base that had spent the vast majority of the game trying to shrug off its gloom and provide its Wildcats with support had now been lifted off its feet by the most valiant of second-half fight backs. One of the most storied team in the tourney Northwestern faces top seed Gonzaga. NU cut it to five with 22 seconds left. It was Taphorn again on a inbound pass hit a National Basketball Association three putting Northwestern in single digits Gonzaga now holds a 9 point lead 59-50 with 8:41 remaining.
