While it may not impact the result, Lorenzo Romar has contacted the Pac-12 about the end of the OSU game.

UPDATED:  The Pac-12 has concluded no wrongdoing in the last seconds of Wednesday night's game per ESPN.

The Pac-12 officials are investigating a complaint made by Lorenzo Romar protesting the last-second shot made by Oregon State’s Stephen Thompson, Jr. Replays showed that the clock did not start on time. OSU beat UW 82-81 on the last-second 3.

The video also shows that Thompson also traveled, although that does not appear to be the central point of Romar’s complaint.

League spokesman Dave Hirsch told ESPN.com that the conference was looking into the situation.

The ESPN.com article reporting on the protest notes that Mountain West officials dealt with a similar situation in a Boise State-Colorado State game in which a last-second buzzer beater by the Broncos was waved off after a review of replay.

Just in case you didn't see it last night, prepare to be sick...

Don’t expect much from the Pac-12 on the investigation except maybe, at best, a "mea culpa." It won’t take away the UW loss. The OSU game was pivotal for the Dawgs' tourney hopes, and the loss now puts UW in a situation where it must win out and/or win the conference tournament to make the NCAA tournament.
