Waterloo West High School Boys Basketball has been one of the top ranked teams in Class 4A in Iowa this season. West High was looking to make it's first trip to the state tournament since 1994. North Scott hosted the finals of substate at the US Cellular Center, which was supposed to be neutral turff. West High's coach was not notified of this until the day before.

Throughout the game, the score table made numerous mistakes, including forgetting to give West High points in a timely manner and not starting the game clock on time. Towards the end of the game West High scored taking the 40-38 lead over North Scott. With .6 seconds left, North Scott made a Hail Mary pass to a player on the other side of the court. This player had .6 seconds to catch the ball, land, turn around and shoot a 3 pointer well beyond the high school three point line. The referees called the shot good sending North Scott to the state tournament.

However, there is numerous video and photo evidence indicating that the player did not release the ball before the buzzer. In the videos you can also see that the clock, buzzer and backboard lights were not in sync, not allowing the referees to make an accurate assessment. 

West High Boys Basketball worked hard to get to this point and deserves to be in the State Tournament.
