Big East commissioner John Marinatto said Thursday that three officials “voluntarily” withdrew themselves from this week’s tournament at MSG following a blown call uproar. The Post paints a different picture, reporting that the refs “were told to put away their whistles.”
By now you have probably seen the play a dozen times. Justin Brownlee of St. John’s picks up the loose ball, up two, with a few seconds left in the game and steps out of bounds. But there’s a much bigger issue to be looked at here.
After a colossal missed call that cost the Scarlet Knights their chance at beating St. John’s on Wednesday, Jim Burr, Tim Higgins and Earl Walton have voluntarily pulled themselves from the Big East Tournament.
