Colorado’s Sabatino Chen hits game winning shot against Arizona, only to have it called off

The refs and this play will be the centerpiece of the Arizona Wildcats-Colorado Buffaloes game on Thursday night.

Colorado’s Sabatino Chen appeared to have hit the game winning 3-point shot with .1 seconds remaining. However, after the refs reviewed the shot, they determined that it didn’t count.

Here’s the apparent reason the banked game-winning shot never counted for Chen (check the clock behind the basket).

Not so fast says NBC’s Rob Dauster.

It’s unclear what the right call was, but Arizona eventually won the game in overtime, 92-82. The potential meaning of this game when March roles around, Arizona as a No.1 seed and Colorado fighting for a spot in the tournament, is frightening. Hope the NCAA committee remembers this play when all is said and done.
