I wondered that in the game thread. Niang was called for the foul and then picked up a foul playing half court D right away. I thought any time a player is hit in the head they were supposed to review it. At least that's the way it's been treated in KU's games this season.
The other play where Perry got a rebound and appeared to be thrown to the ground...I don't know, I think he was falling back into the guy and he actually helped Perry to the ground rather than dropping him. That's what it seemed like to me. He had him kind of awkwardly around the neck though which made it look worse than it was.
