Officials in the Sweet 16 game between Duke and Michigan State appeared to miss a goaltending call on Michigan State midway through the first half costing Duke two points.

Duke guard Seth Curry drove to the edge of the lane and threw up a one-handed floater with the Blue Devils leading 20-18. Michigan State forward Adreian Payne leaped and snatched the ball out of the air when it was clearly descending toward the basket.  No whistle came and the Spartans missed a jumper on the other end.

The Blue Devils brushed it off and surged to an eight-point lead before the Spartans reeled them back in just before halftime thanks, in part, to a 3-pointer from the corner from Payne.

In a one-point game - Duke lead 32-31 at halftime, the potential goaltending call looms large.
