UCLA Eliminates SMU on Questionable Goaltending Call

That’s the shot that decided UCLA’s fate against SMU. That was ruled a goaltend, which gave the Bruins a 60-59 lead. SMU’s Nic Moore missed a pair of shots on the other end for the final. That is certainly a questionable call. It looked live like the shot was way off but it kind of does look like the ball would have hit the rim. I think it can certainly be questioned why Yanick Moreira touched the ball.

UCLA coach Steve Alford said this to CBS after the game:

On a Thursday of great plays, that is one that will be debated throughly this weekend.
