1. Antinio Petty. 2. Lee Cassell. 3. Forrest Sigler.
Missed Walks, 4. Palms, 2
Crew seemed out of sinc most of the game. Switching was slow to happen on several occasions, and might have caused some missed fouls and violations. Switches seemed to happen more fluidly when Mr Petty was at lead position. Off ball coverage looked OK, and there were instances where preventative officiating paid off. However, extremely rough play was allowed in the paint ares, with unacceptable body contact, hands on and elbows not addressed. Mr Cassell was by far the most active and I found myself questioning his calls a lot. Mr Petty was the most effecient, and for the most part, unnoticeable. This was the first time I had seen Mr Sigler. You seemed to disapear at times and allow your partners to call your game, and when the discussions started, there you were. I have several specific concerns.
Sigler; #3 white, moving pick. No call?
Petty-Cassell; #11 blue on the back of #3 white before held ball. Held ball was called.
Cassell; #12 white on and across arm of #2 blue. You called held ball?
Cassell; #12 white, walked before calling timeout. Not called?
Cassell; White team slaped ball away after made basket. Should have been warned for delay of game.
Cassell; You called blocking foul on #22 white fron center position. Players were between you and #22 white.
Mr Petty had best look at defense and had no call.
Sigler-Petty; Hard body contact by #0 blue to #22 white. No call?
Cassell; Good foul call on #1 blue as #10 white had rebound and quick shot.Cassell; #24 blue and #34 white locked arms in paint area and separated with arms swinging. This should have been addressed!
Sigler; #5 blue initiated contact with #22 blue going for rebound. Contact then happened both ways. When #5 blue fell to floor you called foul on #22 white. Did you consider a double foul?
Cassell; #24 blue with hard body contact on #34 white. On high arm swing by #34 white, I only saw contact with bicep area and no contact by elbow. No foul on #24 blue, but flagrant 1 on #34 white. Puzzling.
Obviously Mr Cassell did not have a good game. Hustle was there, but in tough situations, judgement was questionable. Mr Sigler seemed to have trouble adjusting and would disapear at times. Mr Petty was the most consistent, was involved in the game and made the necessary calls. Split grade for this crew. Mr Petty, B+; Mr Sigler, C; Mr Cassell, C-.
