Should UNC Have Received More Time In Game Against Duke?

Posted February 11, 2005

— Some University of North Carolina fans may have a gripe with the officiating crew in Wednesday's game against Duke.

Referees wear devices on their belt that when the whistle blows, the clock stops instantly.

At the 1:32 mark in the second half of the game, a full six seconds ran off until the clock finally stops on another whistle.

No one on UNC's bench noticed and the six seconds were never put back on the clock.

The Duke Blue Devils won the game 71-70.
