Jahlil Okafor earns third foul on controversial call

Tuesday April 7th, 2015

Duke's Jahlil Okafor was forced to the bench after he was called for his third foul while defending Wisconsin's Frank Kaminsky with 16:50 left in the game.


Okafor appeared to come up with a clean block but was nonetheless whistled for the foul. 

Okafor, Duke's leading scorer and rebounder, had six points, two rebounds and two turnovers before he went to the bench. He came back in to the gameafter about a six-minute absence. The Blue Devils went on an 11-3 run over the final two minutes he was out.

Okafor then picked up his fourth foul about a minute after he returned to the court.
