Clearly, clearly a jump ball. The rule states that the hand is part of the ball in a possession situation. Sorry ABC crowd....

I'm a Carolina fan and I believe we got away with one there. I think the refs were paying us back for the missed call earlier on Tyler. Thats what we do. We get the calls. See you chumps in the championship!

If you want to talk questionable calls, how about the goal tending on Hansbrough. No question. The jump ball was close but the replay looks like the right call. Get a life. This is worst group of so called sportswriters in America.

Carolina won't make it to the Elite 8. They won't get the calls in the NCAA. Hansborough will finally get called for a foul.

Who needs Lawson when the Heels have the refs on their side????

Im a carolina fan and if anyone thinks that was not a jump ball then you need to pass over the wacky tobacky! Only two teams in the NCAA get away with bad calls like that and the tarheels are one of them

Great Pics. This is the most useful information that I have seen on this site in a very long time.

I didnt get to see the game but from what the picture shows. Thats not a jump ball due to the fact BOTH Tylers hands were not on the ball. Just saying, from those pics, not a jump ball

A jumpball doesn't require both hands to be on the ball, pal.

It may have been the correct call....but, rest assured had it been Tyler possessing the ball and a couple of Va Tech people doing the same thing, it would have been a foul. Absolutely no doubt about that

Doc, if Tyler had shot a short jumper and had it blocked while clearly on it's way down, would VT assuredly be whistled for Goal Tending?

The foul occurred before this sequence of photos. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mc117I3ZB3o

However, if you view this set of photos in a vacuum, it was a jump ball.

Hansbrough has more hand than ball, and the photo doesn't show his arm around the VT player's back. Before Carolina started giving fouls at the end it was 10 fouls for VaTech and 3 for Carolina. It's the same old story. VT plays a hell of a game and the refs take it away.

Clearly a jump ball. The VT players froze up and were tossing the ball around hoping for a call. The guy brought the ball up and Tyler put his hand directly on the ball. Whoever said both hands are required doesn't know what they are talking about. You have to go down and win the game with good play, not get jammed up with an all-ball defensive play and cry for a foul because VT "played a hell of a game". UNC may get some calls, but this was a a good defensive play and VT lost a close one.

Hate to such a great game end like this. Va Tech got robbed.

Hansbrough being called for a foul? Please.

I wish you had a shot of his right hand. It was squarely in the middle fo the VT player's back, holding him. That is a foul in both basketball and football, even if you are a Tar Heel player.

These pictures are misleading. The foul occurred before the photos. Hansbrough was all over him for a solid two seconds. I hate everything about UNC but even Hole fans (who actually watched the game) have to agree this was a foul... or certainly would have been if the two teams were reversed.

He fouled out of his final game at the Smith Center against Duke. How does your supposition that he never gets called for a foul hold water? Hansbrough has committed 12 fouls in his last three ACC contests. The kid is aggressive and he is officiated accordingly.

The VT player was completely hacked and bumped by 3 players before hansbrough started grabbing him, absolutely a foul before the potential jump ball situation, but Since everyone that never went to college is a UNC fan, and you want to get the most viewers possible, everyone wants UNC to win, refs included.

The funny thing is, Hansbrough thought te whistle was for a foul at first, as would anyone that wasnt a biased carolina fan, and as soon as he realised the refs gave them the game, he does his ugly-goofy celebration and the announcers start their "Hansbrough Will dialogue"

I think even Heels fans are happy there's no "ugly-goofy" Hansbrough dance to cap of his last ACC Tourney. Duke won the conference crown and they did it fair and square.
