On the radio they talked about Perkins bringing up a problem with the balll......they thought it had to do with air pressure.

Unbelievable, there is a big difference between girl's balls and men's balls. The referee should have noticed at the tip.

there is also a difference, that I believe is sometimes significant, in the makers of men's basketballs, in weight and diameter. I am not going to take the trouble , but about a year ago I posted a thread in here entitled "The Basketball". Some NBA players, and college players commented the differences didn't bother them, while others noticed it and some were irritated by it.

DEFLATEGATE?
The teams combined to make their first three shots with a ball that was under-inflated. Gonzaga’s Josh Perkins appeared to bring it to the officials’ attention during a stoppage in play 1:31 into the game. There was a delay of over a minute before a new ball was produced.

We really shouldn't assume the ball's gender guys.

I don't know how that wouldn't be immediately noticeable to the referee that threw it up. That ought to be humiliating. I didn't play past Frosh ball, it was immediately noticeable to me.

My mother would be so proud that, at least to this point, I have managed to control my middle school locker room smart arse reply.

This happened before in another Zags WCC game.. was it last year vs. Portland?

The only two times I have EVER seen this happen (including HS games that have boys/girls play back-to-back) have been in WCC games.
