2021-22 LCPT Quarterfinals: Wake Forest Clock Operator vs. Armando Bacot

It’s an ACC showdown.

It’s an All-ACC showdown in our second quarterfinal.

Wake Forest Clock Operator

Rap Sheet:

—With 4 seconds remaining in the first half of Louisville’s October game in Winston-Salem, Wake Forest ran a running play out of the shotgun. That play was stopped at the goalline, seemingly ending the first half. The Wake Forest clock operator, however, stopped the game clock at 1 second, giving the Demon Deacons a chance to kick a field goal. They would eventually win the game by three points.

—Scott Satterfield was perplexed after the loss, saying:

“They never blew it dead, so it’s kind of hard to tell, and I don’t know when they started the clock. So there was 4 seconds, they’re in shotgun, they hand the ball off, and I don’t know how that was only 3 seconds. But obviously, I’m not working the clock here in Winston-Salem.”

—Video appears to show Louisville got hosed.


Armando Bacot


—Appeared to foul out approximately 17 times during North Carolina’s overtime win at Louisville on Feb. 1. Instead he finished as the game’s difference-maker, totaling 19 points and 22 rebounds.

—Flopped on this decisive play that drew a flagrant foul call on Jae’Lyn Withers and then admitted to Withers in the handshake line that he flopped.

Attempted to trip Jarrod West at one point and also gave a forearm to the face of Sydney Curry. Neither play resulted in a foul call on Bacot, and the latter resulted in a foul and a subsequent technical foul on Louisville.

—Impartial spectators from across the country were left blown away by the officiating.
