New Jersey Lawmaker wants investigation into Lady Vols vs Rutgers outcome

A New Jersey lawmaker hasn't gotten over Rutgers' disputed loss to Tennessee in February.

State Sen. Robert Singer wants the NCAA to investigate the Feb. 11 game that Tennessee won 59-58 over Rutgers, despite a question over whether the clock expired.

The Republican's non-binding legislation calls upon the NCAA to investigate why the game clock seemed to pause for more than a second just before reaching zero. Tennessee had time for Nicky Anosike to make two foul shots to win.

Officials replayed the video and ruled the foul came just before the buzzer.

Tennessee (30-2) faces Oral Roberts (19-13) in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Sunday.

Rutgers (24-6) plays in the tournament Saturday against Robert Morris (23-9).
