Unreal Scene With Referee At Game

Unreal Scene With Referee At Game, When a teenage basketball prospect (or his parents, for that matter) signs up for a major regional recruiting showcase, they expect to see college assistant coaches in attendance, some experienced coaches and other top recruits on the other side of the court.
What they don’t expect to see is a referee sitting in a folding chair at halfcourt, calling their game without moving.
Incredibly, that’s precisely what happened during the afternoon session of the recent ScoutsFocus Elite Showcase in Greensboro, N.C., where one referee decided she had had enough running up and down the court for one day.
Never mind the fact that the players at the event were running at least as much as she was, and much faster, too. Or that the players she was officiating were paying for the privilege of playing at the event, while she was getting paid. Evidently neither of those factors was enough motivation to keep this referee on her feet.
According to the list of referees for the event, the midcourt sitter was a woman named Nicole Henry. While it’s likely that Henry was working the event predominantly as a way to earn some extra weekend cash, that hardly justifies her decision to quite literally sit down on the job.
