IAABO Play of the week: contact

If you don't want to hear the IAABO infomercial, please skip to around the 2:20 mark.

It appears the player made a legal jump stop prior to shooting. He was clearly fouled in the act of shooting. The officials mechanics at the location were good. To the speaker's point: the official 1) did not indicate the foul to the player or his partners 2) was giving mechanics while walking 3) did not hustle to the table. Perception is reality ... work on the entire package. Getting the call right is the most important factor, but clear articulating the situation and giving the impression of hustle is a close second.
