Intentional Foul?

I'm not sure if there are any, but for all you Xavier fans out there this is from the Dispatch. This was taken with about 10 seconds left right before Cage was delivered a hard foul and sent to the floor.

Besides the obvious hold, notice Lighty, the shooter, on the ground and something that's very common this year, Oden's shirt is untucked. How did that happen? Oden is also "going for the ball," which would make the ensuing push foul a standard and not intentional foul.

Thank you Mr. Lewis for letting me get excited and care about basketball for at least another few days. Hopefully Tennessee's vicious full court press won't give the bucks as many problems as they had in January.

  1. Everyone down here is talking about the "intentional" foul. My question is, "is it 'intentional' when Oden gets mugged on every play?"
