    How is it that everyone except Packer and Nantz saw Green walk on the last shot. I understand they have a difficult angle but don't they have TVs or at least the ability to watch it on the big screen. I was pulling for Georgetown but that walk was blatant.

    It's not a travel. It's only a travel if your pivot foot touches the ground again before you shoot, or if you drag it first. As long as you go up from the spot, it's ok. It's the same thing as being allowed two steps on a running layup.

    Sorry but you're wrong.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Jump to: navigation, search

    In basketball, traveling is a violation of the rules that occurs when a player holding the ball illegally moves one or both of his feet. Most commonly, a player travels by illegally moving his pivot foot or taking too many steps without dribbling the ball.
    Gumbel, Davis, and Kellogg were all unanimous on this one. Green established his pivot foot and then picked it up to pivot on the other foot.

    But it's still your pivot foot until it touches another point on the ground.

    3. After coming to a stop and establishing a pivot foot:
    a. The pivot foot may be lifted, but not returned to the floor, before the ball is released on a pass or try for goal;

    The only thing that can be viewed differently is if the referees felt Green jumped. He didn't, and they didn't think he did. You are allowed to step off your pivot foot, though. They were wrong.

    I see what you're saying now. Did he take the shot off his left foot and not set his right foot down again?

    99% sure that's what happened.

    It sure looked like he travelled but you could be right. I'll have to check out the replay again.

    North Carolina knocks off SC. Huge chokejob there. Probably worse than that of Tennessee.

    It's like they just gave up when Gibson got his 4th foul. They weren't getting back on defense, and they were lagging around on offense.

    That USC choke job was crucial to my weekend. My wife would have stayed ahead of me had they won.
