Had a funny story from about a week ago. I finally started getting some varsity games the second half of this basketball season. I got four girls small school games, one in ND and 3 in MN. They all were pretty much blow outs so they were protecting a young official. Anyway...one of the games was pretty much over at the end of the 1st quarter. With about 20 seconds left in the half there was a girl that caught the ball and in turning towards the hoop got slapped on the wrist. Her coach thought she was shooting, but she hadn't even looked at the basket. So we took the ball out of bounds because they weren't in the bonus. Their coach kept being insistent about the shooting foul, even as they walked to halftime. After half time he came out and argued for about 20 seconds...and earned him self a technical. In the process of which referring to watching the video at half time(which is illegal in high school ball). Then after I T'd him up he walked towards his bench said you know what...paused turned around and as he was walking past me said..."You suck"...So i blew my whistle said good bye and ejected him. It was a crappy way to start the second half. But it was pretty funny and about everyone that ref's up here heard the story from people other than me in the past week.
