Afraid I donít have my rule book handy, but itís a valid call.

(Though the refs were certainly letting Ďem play tonight, so it was a weird one to call.)

Thanks, guys... I agree if there's contact, then it's a foul. But "close" guarding? "Overly crowding" a player? What about when there's a double-team on a ball handler... sometimes I can't even see the ball handler, especially when the defensive double-team is "leaning" over the ball handler. Isn't that "overly crowding" too? Or maybe that will be called this year.
