HOUSTON — For Gonzaga, the timing could not have been worse.
Coach Mark Few tells The Associated Press the NCAA called to inform him officials blew the call on a 10-second violation that went against the Bulldogs late in Syracuse’s come-from-behind win in the Sweet 16.
The turnover came with 1:17 left and Gonzaga leading 60-59. Josh Perkins skipped a pass for Kyle Dranginis into the front court, and a Syracuse player deflected it back across the line.
Refs called a 10-second violation but the 10-second limit in the backcourt should have reset once a player touched the ball in the front court.
Syracuse scored the last four points as part of a 15-3 run to end the game for a 63-60 win.
The NCAA did not immediately respond to an email from AP seeking comment.
