Typically yes, but tonight it seemed that Diakite(sp?) & Salt had him tied up pretty well. Haarms did not seem to be as open or able to move if he had the ball. Cline did not seem as involved either. If he had an open shot, he typically passed which is different than how he played against TN.I still believe that Haarms is criminally underutilized for Purdue. Edwards was sensational, but I think they needed to play through Haarms more. Edwards does things other players can't but just as much as he giveth he also taketh away with poor shot selection (aka being down 1 and chucking a contested 3). Hard to fault the guy, but that was a poor choice.
They did, but it's still considered a loose ball and therefore not a backcourt violation. Technically they don't count that as possession. Although, IMO, a controlled tip is close enough to possession that I think it should be counted. I'm pretty sure controlled tips are sometimes counted as rebounds.I watched this game in a room full of screaming kids so may have missed something, but didn’t UVA tip the ball into the backcourt at the end of regulation? Or did I miss something there?
I seen a couple friends talking about that on FB. I thought because it was a loose ball rebound off a missed free throw that it didn't matter. I might be wrong thoughI watched this game in a room full of screaming kids so may have missed something, but didn’t UVA tip the ball into the backcourt at the end of regulation?

I thought Virginia would foul before Edwards could get a 3 pt shot off. Guessing that was the thought of getting the ball to Cline?When the camera was overhead of the sideline before the play, that seemed to be what Painter was drawing up on the white board. To pass to where Cline rolled out to.
