A Ridiculous Technical Foul Was Called In An NCAA Tournament Game Today

Player dunks, gets called for technical foul.

One of the best games of Day 2 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament appears to be Wichita State-Marshall.

The No. 4-seeded Shockers and the No. 13-seeded Thundering Herd are in a tight one. WSU leads by 5 points with about 15 minutes to play.

The game has been really fun - except for one aspect. Officiating.

There was a ridiculous technical foul called on Marshall for "hanging on the rim." It was pretty absurd.

Check this out:

Did this call change the game? Maybe not.

But, Marshall was leading by 5 points at the time and did have momentum. Since then, Wichita State out-scored the Thundering Herd by 10 points.

The game is being televised on TNT. We've got just under 14 minutes to play.

The winner will move on to face the winner of the game between No. 5 West Virginia and No. 12 Murray State. The second round game is set for Sunday.
