Clemson-Duke ending involves two controversial plays (Video)

Rodney Hood Duke ClemsonThe ACC tournament quarterfinal game between Clemson and Duke on Friday night ended in a controversy after two calls went Duke’s way.

The first play occurred with Clemson up 62-61 on Duke. Rodney Hood drove into traffic and was fouled by K.J. McDaniels with 3.8 seconds left, sending him to the free throw line where he gave the Blue Devils the lead. The question was whether he was fouled.

Officials obviously gave Duke the call on that play, though it was really close, and I don’t think the right call was made.

After Hood made the free throws, Clemson guard Rod Hall sped the length of the court and lost the ball as he went between two Duke defenders all out-of-control style. No call was the proper decision in my opinion, so Clemson fans really didn’t have much of an argument.

You can see the play below:

About the only controversy there was whether Hood should have been sent to the line. I probably would lean to no.
