Was Trey Burke’s block attempt on Peyton Siva actually a foul like it was called?

trey burke peyton siva michiga block foul

Wooden Award winner Trey Burke hopped up to block a Peyton Siva dunk attempt, and as he put the star Louisville guard in his place, a whistle was blown.

Burke was called for a foul, and he was not happy at all about it.

What do you think? Should this play have been called against Burke, or should the refs have let the players actually play? Sound off in the comments below!

    Clean! 2/3 refs were big East refs. Devil’s advocate won tonight

    Are you kidding me? There is no debate here!! Anyone in their right mind can clearly see that was not a foul!! The only thing more UN-BE-F’IN-LIEVABLE than this being called a foul, is disputing whether it was or not!!

    Check the video from behind the glass (not shown here but available elsewhere online … it is the source of the photo of the moment Burke contacted ball used above) but in video Burke’s right arm is extended across Siva’s path and contacts Siva clearly in the midsection BEFORE Burke touches the ball. That was the contact the ref called a foul. Since the post above uses the photo without using that video stream I’d guess that the poster realizes that video wouldn’t support his case.
