Tennessee Vols. vs Purdue Game
Tennessee’s Lamonte Turner was called for a foul on Carsen Edwards behind the arc with 1.7 seconds left in regulation. The Purdue junior guard made two of his three free throws, sending the game to overtime.
Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said, “It was a foul,” Barnes said. “It was a foul. He missed the shot. Lamonte hit him after the shot. That’s a tough play because, again, we knew — I think actually they were trying to work something inside.”
Barnes added that “It was three feet out of his hand when he hit him. We know the rule. You’ve got to allow the shooter to come back down. It’s a tough one because, in that situation, we know we can’t foul there and they’ve got to make that shot.”
