Well the official did appear to make the correct call, but as the lead official he should have sprinted to the endline to officiate the players and allowed the trail (2-person crew) or center or trail (3-person crew) to make the call. Unless this was the final shot of a very closely contested game, the mechanics were well overstated. Was there a need to sell this call as if it was a high school state final? By the reaction of the players and fans, I doubt it. Only sell the call when there is a need.
