ACC Basketball: Timing error in Duke win

Associated Press

GREENSBORO — The Atlantic Coast Conference admitted Friday that a timing error was made in the closing seconds of No. 10 Duke’s 68-66 win over 19th-ranked Clemson.

Coordinator of basketball officials John Clougherty said the league reviewed the game film and discussed the clock controversy with the officials, Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski and Clemson’s Oliver Purnell.

“The league acknowledges that a timing error was made in not starting the game clock at the correct time,” said Clougherty.

The confusion started shortly after Clemson’s Vernon Hamilton made a layup to pull the Tigers to 66-63 with five seconds left.

Josh McRoberts’ inbounds pass went to Hamilton just outside the 3-point arc. Hamilton hit a 3 to tie it with 1.8 seconds left, which seemed to have the game headed for overtime.

But officials stopped play to review the time remaining and restored the clock to 4.4 seconds. The clock did not restart on the steal until the ball was almost in the basket — a pause of more than a second.

McRoberts then inbounded the ball to Jon Scheyer. He pushed the ball near midcourt and passed to David McClure, who made a layup as time expired to give the Blue Devils the win.

“I am satisfied with their review in this matter,” Purnell said Friday.
