Officials across the country received a memo last week to review how they should treat end-of-game situations after the Indiana-Charlotte flap on Dec. 22 in Bloomington.

Officials were instructed to talk to the television production crew before the game to ensure that the clock in the truck is in sync with the game clock courtside.

Charlotte beat Indiana on a halfcourt 3-pointer at the buzzer. Indiana had an in-house camera that showed the clock at 0:00 when the ball was still in the hands of Brendan Plavich, but the officials went to ESPN regional's camera, which showed the shot left Plavich's hands before the clock read 0:00, but there was a one-tenth to two-tenth delay.
