    I'm not sure how the refs came to that conclusion. I can't speak for their thinking.

    Replay looks obvious to me that NSU player initiated the hook and hold.
    Ok let me be the NSU homer on this one. I argue their arms were incidentally hooked and Riemersma pulled Gabe across the lane and you can even see Gabe slightly lifted off the floor before Riemersma falls to the ground. My guess is that is what the refs saw and called.

    I will also argue that any other player in the conference could do the same pat on the head after an awesome dunk and have it chalked up to an emotional play in an emotional game and NOT get a T. Parker has earned his reputation among opposing fans and more importantly officials. Everything he does will be seen under a microscope for the next 2 year. I love that he’s on my team and will not apologize for rooting for him.

      You could argue that, but you’d be wrong. Easy call. Dumb mistake after a nice dunk. Taunting a guy that was already falling over and had no bearing on the play.

          You're entitled your opinion.

          What I see is Riemersma with inside position, his arm is straight down the entire play, and he makes a basketball play by leaping for the rebound. The arms may have incidentally hooked but King completes the hold by moving his arm upward after they're hooked as Tyler prepares to jump.

          My thing with Parker is that he is an incredible athlete but brings an unbelievable amount of attention on himself with his antics. If you're going to do that then you have to be prepared to live with the negative outcomes as well.

            I pretty much agree with you on both points. It’s hard to tell on video exactly what happened and it certainly appears by Gabe’s initial reaction that the foul was called on him. If that’s the case it’s a tough overturn, but I’m happy it was.

            If Parker was wearing a Vikings or Mavericks jersey the opinions of him would be exactly reversed by fans of those schools (and Wolves fans). Northern hasn’t had a player elicit this type of response since Ryan Miller.

              Gary Payton might have been known as The Glove, but Adam was known as the Invisible Hand for his ability to strip the ball without getting called for the foul.

                  I don’t think you saw many Mavs fans defending Carlos Anderson’s antics. And no, I’m not comparing the two as players, but tying to point out it’s ok to not condone the antics of players on your own team.

                  • Laker...you do know how to make me laugh. Back in day when I was young a motivational speaker uttered those words pointing at me, haha.

                      I was thinking the only bright spot about this one is it might help us forget about that one.

                        No need to apologize for Parker’s antics...nothing you can do about it. There may be something the nsu coaches could do about it, if they really wanted to...You should cheer for your team and for Parker as part of that team. Still it’s also okay to say that you don’t condone such antics and would prefer that he not engage in them. My guess is you wouldn’t like if a player from another team acted in the same manner. Not a huge issue in grand scheme of it all, but interesting chatter for an nsic chat room.

                          I have no thoughts or opinion on what Fox did. Didn't see and it doesn't really matter to me.

                          For the foul someone posted it so I watched and gave my unbiased opinion. As I said before, in my opinion it looks like the NSU player initiates the hook and hold. NSU player has back to basket, looks like he realizes he's in a bad position for rebound, throws arm up to hook and hold and tries to fight for position from there.

                          • I thought one of the reasons the tournament was moved to Sioux Falls was so there could be good streaming coverage? It has been painful to watch all weekend and now the video won't play at all.

                              And here I thought it was just me. I'm getting the endless blue circle and have for a while. Hope it's fixed in time for Augie's game.

                                Hopefully the Streaming FAQ section in the middle of this page helps:
