Replay of the late offensive foul on Pearson, charge or block?

Seem like the refs got the call right:

Good flop. Nice play by Charleston. Could have been a good no call too but these refs were trigger happy all night, especially Cue Ball, the one who called it.

Should have been a no call. Also, the ref could have called the foul and still counted the basket because the shot was released before contact, but those calls seem to only go against us.

Right call. It was a charge.

If you look at the slow-mo replay, yes, the CofC player had his feat set, but no, Pearson did not "charge" into him. He went around him and the kid fell backwards.

We were at the game and these "Charge"/"Blocking" calls are the most subjective in the game of basketball. Obviously Tony White for Charleston made a dramatic 'flop' but he was in no way dislodged from his 'position' by Pearson. You can see White's right foot move in the video - so he wasn't 'established' in the first place.

Could have been blocking, charge, or no call. The player's feet were planted and Ryan headed his way. Under such circumstances, it was not a bad call. We all know part of drawing a charge at any level requires some acting. And the "Oscar" goes to.......

if the refs had called all the other fouls in the game against CofC it wouldn't have been an issue. I mean I remember one play specifically where we took 3 shots and all three had clear fouls but it took Cam getting slammed to the ground for them to actually call anything.

Then half the time the one ref called out of bounds like 3 seconds late, and while that wouldn't have mattered normally... it was always the ones where there were only like 10 seconds left. Its not hard to blow the whistle.

Probably was a foul, but it felt like we were getting screwed all night so I'm still mad about it.

I agree that Cue Ball killed us on more than a couple calls. There was one dreadful charging call against us earlier... the one against Pearson was certainly a closer call. But whatever happened to that credo that the refs get very reluctant to make a call with the game on the line? Didn't apply here...

OMG when will you guys stop blaming the refs? The fact that we fell behind, missed free throws, and didn't get what we needed from our starters (again) is to blame for this loss. The no-calls would then become a no-issue.

Hard to say. If the first guy confronting Ryan was the first defender, then there should be no charge. It must be a blocking foul on the second defender. That is over. Time for this team to get back and get going. Morrison needs to stay in the games. They are very, very young, however. They will get better and better. They are the 312th youngest team of the 323 D-1 teams. Learn and improve. Good things coming.
