The NCAA's statement reads as follows:
NCAA Second & Third Round March 24 – Iowa State vs. Ohio State
Response from John Adams, NCAA National Coordinator of Men's Basketball Officiating, to pool reporter in Dayton regarding Ohio State-Iowa State game:
"I spoke with the official, and he determined the defender established legal guarding position outside the restricted area prior to the offensive player leading the floor to start his shot. When asked, the official said he did not see the defender's foot over the restricted area line. By rule this is not a reviewable play."

In a game marred by questionable calls going both direction for pretty much the entirety of the afternoon, it seems disingenuous by anyone that watched it in real-time to try and reduce the issue down to one call. Opposing fans (and Craft detractors alike) are welcome to think what they want, but at least Adams' statement can provide some official resolution to those still wanting to debate ad infinitum just one of a number of contentious calls.
