Shot Clock Buzzer Confusion/Clarification from the UCONN-Louisville Game

I was at the game, and the crowd was cheering too loud for us to decipher exactly what had happened. I could see what was going on, and I could tell that Wayne should have played through the clock. We could not understand, though, why the team just started walking off the court.

This video makes it a little bit clearer why they ended the half prematurely, but I am not clear on why the shot clock buzzer was allowed to go off after the kid's shot hit the rim. There was playable time between the brick and the rebound. Is there no violation that occurs when an unwarranted shot clock buzzer goes off?

My mind went back to the UK-UofL game when the brilliant Wildcat fan brought and blew his own whistle at the game. There's a lot of potential for kids to not only get confused, but to also get hurt. I was also reminded of everyone's favorite fake-fair-catch executed by UCONN football circa 2007.

The game is over, but it still feels like someone needs to be taken to task for that error.
