Once UCLA had cut it to 2 and was missing FT intentionally, Oregon could have committed a lane violation on each attempt until UCLA made one, then Oregon gets ball back up by 1.
rule that would allow the ref to issue a technical in a case like that. Something along the lines of an "unsportsmanlike conduct". Though that is an interesting thought as I'm sure they could do it a few times before it would become obvious that it was intentional.
I also read that if the shooting team also commits a violation, including not hitting the rim, the ball goes to the possession arrow so you probably wouldn’t do this unless you had the arrow.
versus an offensive rebound and a tip in with a 7 footer. However, if there was under two seconds left I would go with #1. 3 seconds and change is enough time to get an outlet pass and a decent look at a win.
The key is being smart about how to defend the inbounds pass after the made free throw. Don't allow anyone to catch the ball with momentum going towards the basket they are shooting at.
I'd probably go with option one as you should be able to take away the quick outlet pass. Of course there is always the risk that the FT shooter messes up and doesn't hit the rim which puts you in a bad spot. I don't like the fouling option, especially with how it played out in this game as UCLA caught the ball very deep in their back court and there was no way they were gonna get any kind of good look.
