With 6 fouls you are technically in bonus.
If this is true, rule needs to be changed.
Here is the difference to basically the vary same play.
We shot it so our team no longer has possession. Thus that over the back on Clyburn is a "loose ball foul." Free throws are given.
Because a team had control and passed it to a teammate and Babb is fouled before he touches it then it is considered a "team control foul" Under that classification bonus free throws are not given.
Great defensive play by Babb that got wasted. As I've always understood things, once you are in the bonus, the only foul that doesn't lead to free throws is an offensive foul where the player called for the foul possesses the ball. Would have been justice if we had sunk a miracle three to offset Smart's at the end of the first half.
Is anyone else with me, if Babb goes to the line, I have very little doubt he does not make both of those, we take them to OT and win in OT. We should have won that game, but our post defense hurt us in the end, open layups at the end caused our demise.
Definition of player control foul:
A player-control foul is an offensive foul committed by the player/team in control of the ball (OSU inbounded). The most often seen PC foul is for what most people call a charge, even though this is not the technically correct term. This type of foul never results in free throws for the offended team, even if he offended team is in the "bonus" or "double bonus."
It's a player control foul on Oklahoma State because they were the "offensive team" on the inbounds. Just looked it up.
I read through this thread hoping for an explanation, but there isn't one. That foul put us in the bonus. It wasn't a player control foul, because the OSU player wasn't driving with the ball out of control. It was an over the back, just like on a rebound. Unless there is some other explanation, Babb should have been shooting FTs.
But it shouldn't have even come to that after all the other crappy calls (crazy 4th foul on Melvin, Melvin getting hacked before Forte stole the ball, Mcgee getting shoved before the ball arrived, etc.).
