The Pac-12 Conference championship went down to the wire as the Arizona Wildcats took home the win over the UCLA Bruins.
However, many are still clamoring about a horrific foul call that came midway through the first half.
UCLA guard Amari Bailey went up and threw down one of the sickest posters you’ll see. It was a grown-man dunk that got fans everywhere hyped. But somehow, some way, the referees called it an offensive foul.
Take a gander for yourself.
HOW was this Amari Bailey poster called an offensive foul ⁉️😱

In what world is that a foul on UCLA? Just a complete fumble by the referees of this game.
Like what was the ref looking at? Nothing about that play indicated a foul should even be called. But yet, here we are.
College basketball fans couldn’t believe their eyes either after the foul was called on UCLA.
Quite literally the worst call of all time

I thought the NFL was bad.
Officiating in college hoops is EGREGIOUSLY abominable!

There has to be some kind of punishment coming for the ref, right?
See, now that ref needs to catch a fine.
That’s an egregious missed call! Smh

As Charles Barkley would say, “that’s just terrible.”
Not to mention the defender was in the restricted area so it can’t be an offensive foul. Defender stayed straight up no call just play. Refs don’t have to involve themselves in every play

Luckily, UCLA will still be participating in the big dance. Maybe they can get some revenge during the tournament.
