NCAA Admits To Blown Goaltending Call During Northwestern-Gonzaga

Lumpkin was a Bill Carmody recruit and found himself with a season-ending injury during his freshman season, Carmody's last at Northwestern, meaning he's been able to spend four seasons watching Collins take the Wildcats from the bottom of the Big Ten standings to the team's first-ever NCAA tournament. The refs missed the call and then issued a technical to Northwestern coach Chris Collins for his reaction. But the Bulldogs didn't wait to grab control of the game, opening up a 10-0 run aided by NU's five early turnovers, a whole lot of missed shots and some favorable calls. Had the basket gone in, it would have been a 63-60 game - instead, it was a 65-58 game after the technical free throws.

"I was trying to find something different", he said of playing without an undershirt.

Xavier (23-13) has reached the Sweet 16 six times in the past 10 years, including four trips under Coach Chris Mack.

"It makes me feel great", he said to laughter. Weathering a second-half rally from an inspired underdog such as Northwestern wasn't going to be enough to knock them off their feet.

As the minutes section of the many electronic game clocks displays simultaneously ticked from "6" to "5", a raucous, half-disbelieving buzz swelled from the large purple section of the seats in Vivint Smart Home Arena and resounded throughout every corner of the building. Gonzaga won against Northwestern 79-73. Their 14 and 8 points helped stave off the multitude of second half Wildcat surges.

"To have people kind of jump on our backs like that was awesome", said Northwestern forward Nathan Taphorn, sitting by his locker. Football coach Pat Fitzgerald, giving Willie the Wildcat a run for his money as team mascot, and ESPN personality Mike Greenberg led the crowd in the school fight song. "Coming here and just really competing was just awesome".

"The cornerstone of our program is never quitting", said Law. "But it's an honest mistake". He was quickly given a technical foul. Referees are human beings, they're here for a reason, because they're outstanding officials. Zach Collins' hand slips up through the netting.

Somali refugees killed in Yemen airstrike
Among the dead on the boat were Somali refugees carrying identity documents issued by the UNHCR, the UN's refugee agency said . Several refugee camps in southern Yemen are hosting Somali refugees, although not in the Hodeida area.

"My friends have been texting me that my hand was in the rim, but I'm going to take that as a block", he said.

"Wow", Collins said on multiple occasions, feigning surprise. Bryant McIntosh led Northwestern with 7 pts and Nigel Williams - Goss 14 pts for Gonzaga.

Literally, when the referee makes a call than you just can not handle.

The team that had scored seven points off Northwestern turnovers in the first half was now the team that had turned over the ball 11 times (and allowed the Wildcats to score 17 points off those turnovers).

Law's second half success occurred within the same incomplete framework, but this time just happened to produce the success of the Butler, Michigan State or Michigan games.

One-seed Gonzaga advances to its third Sweet 16 in a row, and will face five-seed West Virginia in San Jose on Thursday.
