As I watched the replay of Evan Turner’s 3-point heave to beat Michigan at the buzzer, two things became abundantly clear: John Beilein should have considered putting Manny Harris on Turner, or double-teaming him, or doing something, and the clock clearly didn’t start until after Turner took his first dribble.
I’ve watch the replay numerous times; it’s just so obvious. Turner caught the ball as he turned upcourt, dribbled…and then the clock started. The visual evidence backs it up. If you want to bring logic into the picture, is 2.2 seconds enough time for a 6’7″ guy not named LeBron to take two full dribbles covering nearly half of the length of the court, jump really high, then release a shot? No. Had Turner shot the ball on his way up, that would be one thing; but he released the ball at the apex of his jump.
I will post a video as soon as possible–I’m not sure how nobody has figured this out yet.
