The refereeing was not the greatest in the national championship game between North Carolina and Gonzaga. Even LeBron James knew it.
And with 50 seconds to play in a 66-65 game, the referees appeared to have missed another call.
Let's look at it from another angle:
Tar Heels forwardKennedy Meeks' hand was out of bounds while fighting for a loose ball with Gonzaga's Silas Melson, withthe referee standing on the baseline watching the play unfold. Play continued for a couple of seconds until the referees called a jump ball and North Carolina retained possession. The Tar Heels went on to win the 2017 NCAA Tournament, beating the Bulldogs, 71-65.
