BOULDER, Colo. — Fans of University of Colorado basketball think the men’s team got robbed by a controversial call on the part of the officials in Arizona Thursday night. It’s made them so mad they’re still talking about it in Boulder Friday.
It appeared the Buffs’ Sabotino Chen hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer against the #3-ranked Arizona Wildcats. The referees originally called it good.
But then took a look at the replay, and overruled the call, saying the shot went up after the clock hit zero. The thing is, it looked like he shot the ball before the clock hit zero.
Instead of CU pulling off the major upset, the game was tied 80-80 at the end of regulation. Arizona dominated the overtime and won a very controversial game 92-83.
This all happened after the Buffs blew a 17-point halftime lead.
