    Notice how he blew the whistle after the ball went through the hoop. Real shame for girls that works their tails off 12 months out of the year to have this guy who obviously has an agenda to make a call like that.

      Based on this video, not enough evidence to overturn. It’s looks offly close to a dribble first then, left, right, left, shot.

      To Jim Grim, you can hear the whistle as the shot goes up. Clearly not after the ball goes through the basket.

    Heard from Phil Miller with the York Chapter of basketball officials. He explained the travel call:

    The ball handler picks up her dribble (ending her dribble) about 14 feet from the basket.
    Her left foot is touching the floor while the ball is in her hands, establishing her left foot as her pivot foot (00:27).
    She then takes a step with her right foot, lifting her pivot foot (00:28).
    She then places her left (pivot) foot back on the floor prior to releasing the ball for her try for goal.
    The player has traveled.

    According to NFHS Rule 4-44 ART. 3
    Traveling is moving a foot or feet in any direction in excess of prescribed limits while holding the ball. The limits on foot movements are as follows:
    a. The pivot foot may be lifted, but not returned to the floor, before the ball is released on a pass or try for goal.
