It's a tough to call to make either way.
Unless a bad call comes on the final play of a game that's result would have been reversed otherwise like that NFL replacement ref debacle in Seattle they are tenuous scapegoats, at best.

Clyburn, the player called for the charge, wasn't even sure what happened.
The Iowa State Adidas Rose 6 Release Date player was whistled for the foul, the basket was nullified and Ohio State gained possession. The Buckeyes tied the game seconds later, then won on Craft's three pointer in the final second.
During the game's broadcast, the legitimacy of the call was less clear. Clark Kellogg and Jim Nantz praised Craft for raising his heel so that it didn't touch the restricted area under the basket, where charges can't be called. There were multiple problems with that statement.
After the game, the NCAA national coordinator of men's basketball officiating, John Adams, gave his explanation.
The problem, perhaps, isn't with the call, it's with the idea that college basketball rewards defensive players for sliding into position and standing still rather than playing defense.
Midwest Regional (Philadelphia): Duke Blue Devils guard Seth Curry shoots a jump shot during the first half against the Creighton Bluejays at Wells Fargo Center. Curry scored 17 points with four rebounds and two steals in the 66 50 win. The team had multiple chances to win the game in the final seconds. The Cyclones still held the lead after the change of possession and had the ball with the game tied with 1:15 remaining, setting up Ohio State's final possession. On Craft's buzzer beater, the defense allowed him to dribble without contest and gave him space to hit the final shot.
First, if Craft's heel was still moving, then he wasn't properly set. That means it was a block and Clyburn should have been awarded the basket, plus one free throw.
Analysts on CBS and across the Internet disagreed with the call. Jay Bilas called it a "failure." Adidas Sl 72 Yellow Black
Second, a defender standing over the restricted area is considered to be in the restricted area. The application of the rule isn't like a ball handler standing with his heels over the out of bounds area. If Craft's foot was above the semi circle, then he can't take a charge. (The ruling is similar to how it's considered a touchdown if a football crosses the plane of the end zone, but not out of bounds if a ball crossed the plane of the sideline.)

Mar 24, 2013; Dayton, OH, USA; Ohio State Buckeyes guard Aaron Craft (4) gestures after making the game winning shot as Iowa State Cyclones forward Georges Niang (31) kneels to the ground during the third round of the 2013 NCAA tournament at University of Dayton Arena. Ohio State defeats Iowa State 78 75. But officials believed Craft had set himself in a legal area before Clyburn released the ball. His heel was just above a restricted area under the basket and it looked like he had narrowly positioned himself to take the charge.
he said after the game. "I felt like it was a good play. I'm not sure if he got position or if he was there or not."
Controversial call hangs over Ohio State victory
Greg Anthony, Kenny Smith and Charles Barkley disputed the ruling on the court. John Adams, the national coordinator of officiating for the NCAA, admitted it was probably a missed call, but said it was so quick that it's hard to say for certain.
"I spoke with the official, and he determined the defender established legal guarding position outside the restricted area prior to the offensive player leaving the floor to start his shot," Adams told reporters. "When asked, the official said he did not see the defender's foot over the Adidas Adipure Sl For Sale
