The controversial goaltending call on SMU
Someone bailed out UCLA's Bryce Alford on a 3-point attempt that ended-up winning the game for the 11-seeded Bruins on Thursday, it's just not clear whether it was Southern Methodist's Yanick Moreira or the officiating crew.
Moreira was called for a goaltend on a shot that clearly looked off-line from the son of UCLA coach Steve Alford. In the official's judgment, that means that the SMU player interfered with the ball when it was in the cylinder, but the controversy stems from whether Bryce Alford's ball was in the cylinder in the first place. The play could not be reviewed, officials said after the game.
