UK players regularly tip the ball to the ref after made baskets. Delay of game?


I never noticed this until recently, but a rational KU fan that I interact with on another board pointed it out to me.  Watch after a made baskets, UK players are tipping the ball over to the ref or into the cheerleaders instead of leaving it for the opposing team.  After he pointed this out to me, I started noticing it myself and Patterson particularly seems to do it a lot.  The KU fan said he saw Memphis do it quite often as well and said he thinks its something Calipari teaches them to do.  Obvioiusly the advantage to UK would be that the other team can't inbound the ball immediately and it allows UK to set up their defense better.

His argument was that this should be a warning on the first offense and then a technical foul on subsequent offenses for Delay of Game.  I've just now started noticing it (Patterson did it after almost every basket against Florida) and I don't know if this is explicity against the rules, or if it is just a "loophole" that the team can exploit.

Anyone else know anything about this?
