    Globally, the refereeing was ok, but Lamonica definitely screwed up.
    It was Lamonica show in the last 5 minutes. The first call for carrying the ball happened at that moment, probably the first in the whole tournament, and it was not so obvious.
    It's a bird? It's a plane? No, it's Rudy!

    Default Rudy's Foul

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hzc-...el_video_title

    i'd like to comment this action.

    You can check this video from the Spanish players interviewed by a French site the day before the game.

    they already said that they have to make De Colo unconfortable on the court.
    Considering how they played Parker in Almeria and the way they answered this day, you could see something like that coming.
    This foul is simply the consequence of their game play on parker, which is No easy basket, No easy drive. On the first balls he gets, Calderon comes full court defending by bumping him anytime he can. It caused a few lost balls. I mean, this guy is and NBA player Point guard of a coach that is not known to appreciate guys who looses easy balls, etc..., used to play physical, and Spain managed to bump him enough in 15 meters so he looses his dribble? And no foul? And they did that every possession of the game?

    This exactly the same mindset that brought the foul by Rudy.

    They did the same on De Colo.

    So, the refs were whistling any hand checking, very carefully from anybody, which are the official requirements by FIBA, but since Calderon, Sada, who are strong PGs, did not put the hands but bump him ever time with the chest, there is no foul.
    Spain decided to play this way because it has worked against france for a long time. They have players able to do that, quick enough to stay woth Parler al the time he crossesl the court, 3 guys that can change during the games, while no other team has.

    Yet, if they whistle one or two times early on these bumps, the game would have been clean. Spain might not have been tempted to do any fould on Parker, like Rudy did. But any other Spainish player would have done the same in his position, I guess. It was the instruction from Scariolo, and the refs had let them do until now.

    unfortunately, France was not able to give back these kind of kicks. They need to get dirtier for Fiba ball.
    It's a bird? It's a plane? No, it's Rudy!
