The NCAA Isn't Letting Teddy Valentine Officiate The Tournament

The NCAA Isn't Letting Teddy Valentine Officiate The Tournament”

Valentine also told Goodman that he was informed he would not be working this year's tournament by NCAA coordinator of officials J.D. Collins prior to an assignment at the AAC Tournament over the weekend.

ESPNTed Valentine turned his back on Joel Berry II on January 3.

Valentine was at the center of controversy back in January when he turned his back on Joel Berry II, refusing to have a post-play discussion with the North Carolina guard.

It would've been fine had the NCAA allowed him to work the tournament. That punishment prompted Valentine to tell The Athletic that he was considering retirement due to the excessive criticism coming his way.

Valentine told ESPN the NCAA's decision to keep him off the tournament is "not right, it's just not fair". "It hit me like a ton of bricks".

Following the incident with Joel Berry, Valentine buried the hatchet with the Tar Heels senior.

Valentine said later he apologized to Berry and UNC head coach Roy Williams. "I even pulled him out of a situation where he could have gotten a technical foul".

"I do not disclose selections, assignments or advancements", Collins told ESPN on Monday afternoon.

Veteran referee Ted Valentine will not be working any games in this year's NCAA Tournament, and he feels that it is an injustice. "That's not fair to anyone".

Of course, none of this drama should be that surprising development.

Valentine is a respected official, however he's earned quite the reputation over the years for his flair for the dramatic side. He went nose-to-nose with Cincinnati's Mick Cronin in 2014 and argued with Bobby Knight after ejecting the in coach in 1998.
