Lost: One (1) slightly used basketball officiating whistle
Kansas escaped Hilton Coliseum with a 108-96 win over Iowa State last night, yet the result was not without controversy. Cyclones fans have been up in arms over a series of missed calls down the stretch, none bigger than a no-call when Kansas’ Elijah Johnson drove into the lane with five seconds left, made contact with Iowa State’s Georges Niang and no whistle was blown — either for a block or a charge. (ESPN.com’s Andy Katz reports that Big 12 Conference officials will review the sequence.)
One Iowa State supporter (it would seem) is taking less bureaucratic approach toward rectifying the problem, posting a lost and found ad on Craigslist to help locate the baseline official’s whistle.
