Referee blows out-of-bounds call during UNC Asheville/Syracuse (Video)

There will be one day in the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament where a sixteen seed will beat a number one seed.

Sadly, that hasn't happened yet and some questionable officiating in the UNC Asheville/Syracuse game cost a sixteen a chance to pull off an upset.

Nearing the end of the game, Asheville trailed by three and Syracuse was trying to inbound the ball into play. It appears from the tape that Syracuse's Brandon Triche touches the ball as it goes out of bounds but officials for some reason gave the ball back to Syracuse:

Before that blown call, there was a questionable lane violation during a missed free throw from Syracuse's Scoop Jardine:
