CSUN screwed on charge call in final seconds (Video)
Cal State Northridge lost to Cal Poly 61-59 on Saturday night in the finals of the Big West Tournament, and a bad call in the final seconds of the game did not help their cause.
With the Matadors down 60-59 following a Mustangs 3-pointer, Tre Hale-Edmerson took a pass on a pick and roll, cut into the paint and made 10-foot jump shot. Unfortunately, Hale-Edmerson was called for a charge, which nullified the basket and gave the ball back to Cal Poly. The Mustangs were fouled, made 1-of-2 at the line, and won 61-59 to earn the automatic berth from the conference.
Cal Poly (13-17) became the lowest seed to win the conference tourney (they were the seven seed) and will almost certainly be headed to Dayton for the play-in game.
But about that call. That was just brutal. Zach Gordon wasn’t even set when the two collided, yet he got the call. Man, that’s some bad luck for CSUN.
