Game moderators acknowledge missed call during Gonzaga win

SALT LAKE CITY – A missed call by referees during the Gonzaga-Northwestern game has a lot of people talking.

Northwestern trimmed a 22-point deficit to five and had the ball when Gonzaga's Zach Collins reached up through the basket to reject Dererk Pardon's shot with 4:54 left. There was no call, and Northwestern Coach Chris Collins, jawing with the officials all day, ran onto the court and was slapped with a technical foul.

Moderators owned up to the missed call in a statement after the game and said this should have resulted in a basket for Northwestern. 

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
