Refs made one of the worst calls of the NCAA tournament during Oregon-UNC @vineydelnegro/Twitter

North Carolina managed to work its way past the Oregon Ducks in Saturday’s Final Four tilt, 77-76.

And while Oregon’s inability to box out down the stretch gave North Carolina the uncontested win, one play stands out as maybe the worst call of the entire tournament:

It didn’t drastically impact the result of the game, as Oregon had plenty of chances down the stretch to take this one. But it’s still a horrendous call. The ref was behind the play, and there’s no body movement that hints at contact and from every angle it looked like a supremely clean block.

Hopefully the trend of sometimes awful officiating doesn’t find its way into Monday night’s title game at 9:20 p.m. ET.
