#54 Live from: House of Sports ”Eliminating excess, getting in reps and when players try to sell us”

The House of Sports, located in Ardsley, New York, is Westchester County’s premier basketball facility. There is a current crop of young and hungry officials that are striving to get to the next level. One way to accelerate your growth is to work a high frequency of games and talk about as many of those plays as you can, both during and after the game. This setting is a perfect platform to document those encounters. I'm going to be recording the conversations with my partners during time outs, halftime and pre and post game. This will give you that live feel and a chance to hear our instant reactions to recent plays in that game. Featuring Anthony Calise. TIMESTAMPS: 2:05 Block/charge no call. 3:17 Cheap and 1’s. 5:26 Walled up signal. 7:00 When players show courtesy. 8:10 Asking for help. 10:20 Illegal or Incidental? 12:00 Reducing excess signals. 14:30 When defenders try selling us. 19:00 Crown’s impact on the younger generation of refs. 23:00 Technical foul. 25:55 2 or 3? 27:39 Rule difference. Song by Rapsody ”You should know” off Laila’s Wisdom.
