An up-close look at West Virginia’s thrilling 69-67 road loss to Iowa State, courtesy of Cyclones.com.
The footage includes a terrific angle of Georges Niang’s winning basket with 2.5 seconds left, followed by the midcourt collision of West Virginia’s Eron Harris and Cyclones guard Chris Babb (at the 2:38 mark of the clip).
WVU coach Bob Huggins thought the bump warranted a foul call and free throws for Harris, likening it to the costly end-game foul the Mountaineers committed last Saturday against Kansas State.
“I just can’t believe that we come off a home (game) where a guy gets bumped and falls down and it’s a foul, and there’s no question there’s a bump (on Harris) and he falls down and there’s no call,” Huggins said.
Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg, as you would expect, agreed with the no-call: “I thought Chris did a great job sliding his feet over there to cut him off on the one dribble. There was a little bit of contact there, but I thought Chris did a good job defending that last play.”
