Unsportsmanlike. For some reason that no honest person can fathom.

Rule 10, Section 13, Art. 1(c)

The contact was minimal but that was the applicable ruling.

Beat #2 by 14. Easy game.

The best part is there was not rancor or bad sportsmanship and certainly nothing for Walz to grumble about postgame.

And the gap between rule and application is yawning.
There's no doubt in my mind that Dunham was intentionally fouling Turner so as to put ND's worst free throw shooter on the line. Turner went down before Dunham could actually make much contact, but the fact remains. It's a textbook example of that particular rule.

The fact that the refs often ignore that rule doesn't make the call here any less correct.

Besides, ND was up 7 with the ball with less than 30 seconds left. The only thing that call affected was the final margin of ND's victory.

LOU had fouls to give, but I wonder if Turner didn't realize it and was trying to avoid getting fouled.

Suddenly I'm living in an alternate universe. It's almost as if I haven't been watching basketball my entire life.

Rules change over time. I just cited the current rule for that situation.
