This Was Called A Flagrant Foul In The Michigan-Florida State Game

Michigan's Duncan Robinson was called for a flagrant foul on this play.

The second Elite Eight game of the day is underway. Michigan is taking on Florida State in Los Angeles.

We just had a pretty ridiculous flagrant foul called.

Wolverines guard Duncan Robinson was called for a flagrant foul when he extended his arm while dribbling the ball. He did appear to make contact with a Florida State defender.

There was some serious flopping going on, though. The contact did not look that bad.

The officials reviewed the play and confirmed that it was a flagrant.

Michigan head coach John Beilein was, unsurprisingly, furious.

Here's the play:

That is not a flagrant foul. It's barely anything at all.

Florida State and Michigan are playing pretty tight through about 12 minutes. The game is on TBS.

The winner moves on to play Loyola-Chicago in the Final Four next Saturday night.
