    Didnít they go straight to the video tape before making an original call? There was an original call earlier in the game on an out-of-bounds play and Tech got that one.

    I don't remember.. I thought the announcers commented on the reversal.

    Unless the foul before the double dribble occurred before the video picks up (see 3:56), there was no foul, just minor incidental contact, and certainly not precipitating the double dribble:

    It may not have been as blatant as the missed pass interference call, but it was poor officiating and Auburn would have won had they made the call. I missed it but have friends that saw it in real time. The officials are paid to see it in real time and missed it. Yes, there are missed and incorrect calls in every sort of officiated sporting event, and one could go back to the first half and say this or that call changed the game by 2 or 4 points. But when a missed call occurs 10 minutes into the game, the team on the losing end of the call can say "well, we're down by 8 instead of 6, let's work on that." When it comes with seconds remaining, it pretty much and immediately changes the outcome.

    The entire sequence. Look at 6:00:

    No foul. And, honestly, in looking at the replay, I recall thinking, "did he double dribble?" while watching it live," then thinking, "I guess not, they didn't call it and maybe I don't understand something about the rule."

    I wasn't referring to the first half. There were 3 late calls I could think of off the top of my head which were calls which went against VA which were big calls. Taking the teams best or close to best player off the court that late in the game is a big deal and also shouldn't have happened.

    .....and....what immediately changed the outcome was fouling a guy on a 3 pointer.
