This call changed the game.

South Carolina caught a lucky break when the refs missed a call near the end of the Gamecocks' Elite Eight win against Florida this afternoon. Up by two with less than a minute on the clock, South Carolina used a long pass to inbound the ball.

Duane Notice ran the length of the floor to catch the ball, but noticeably took too many steps without dribbling the ball -- but the refs didn't call a travel.

Notice clearly takes four steps after catching the ball, which should result in a travel, and change of possession. The would give Florida the ball with just over 50 seconds remaining in the game.
