    But SEC so no thanks. The last play is a rarely called foul in my opinion. Even rarer is a double dribble call that was missed late and allowed Virginia to get the lead to within one.

    There is the foul call with slight contact.

      The double dribble, I would guess the referee might have thought the defender bumped the ball. Still a bad no call, but I can see why it might’ve happened.

      The foul on the final Virginia shot attempt is just bad. The final Auburn shot attempt had just as much contact and there was no call. Not to mention, at the end of any close game, referees swallow their whistles and allow much more contact than what was called there. Technically, Auburn did foul Virginia, but if they are going to call that then they should have made the same call at the other end.

        Moot point, but on Auburn’s last shot the defender had established himself and didn’t leave the ground or move – the Auburn kid ended up jumping into him, which is a completely different situation.

          This is why I love sports. Everyone can watch something and see something different. I enjoyed seeing Barkley watching Auburn win. Auburn didn’t belong this far along if we all remember the NMSU early round game. 

          The double dribble should have been called.

          The Virginia defender looks to me like he is stepping back with his right foot when the Auburn shooter makes contact with him. During the first 39 minutes of game time that would be called a foul against Virginia 99% of the time.
