Quite possibly the worst 5 second call in the history of UHSAA tournament play.
And by an official that will be bragging to his buddies at training camps next
Summer - "I'm the guy that called it". Just abysmal actions on his
part time and time again throughout the tournament - ask Mountain View. I paid
to watch the young men play, not watch and listen to him yap to anyone and
everyone about how much he knows about the game, and how he's in charge.
Thanks for letting me vent. Great job by both teams - just a shame that the
final minute could be so cloudy. Bountiful dug deep and I feel badly for #33
from Orem. Great to be back at the Huntsman Center. Congratulations Bountiful
You hear about the player that missed the free throws is going to BYU. But no
mention that Merrill from Bouniful, the MVP is going to Utah State. Its good to
see him go to USU. Go Aggies!
Completely agree with "Amazed" about the official. If you watched him in
the semis (or quarters, can't recall which) he was constantly trying to
show everyone who was boss. Just as an FYI - he is the same official
who was chased off the floor by the Overland, CO. coach back in December at the
Great Western Shootout.
Rod Zundel owes that ref that made the 5 second call an apology. He kept
saying it was a bad call. He kept saying that we needed a stopwatch on him.
Well I backed the video up and timed it twice. I got 5.05 and 5.07 sec. Correct
Too bad an official or officials are hiding behind a screen name. TV said it
was a correct 5 second call. Who remembers the other games but officials??Man up
I'm definitely not an official but I also timed it several times after
Rod's outburst. It was a correct 5-second call. Maybe he's not a great
official, but he made the correct call there.
What a class act Dalton Nixon is. Talk about high character and a true
sportsman. He handled his adversity like every father would hope his child
would, showing a maturity beyond his years. Tough loss young man,
but you'll forever be a champion in my mind.Here's to a
successful church mission, playing career, and life.Impressed/
respected in West Jordan!
