I don't know how old sassyLSU is, but the rules of basketball have changed over the years. That would have been palming the ball back in the sixties and seventies.

The Tigers could make quite a run in the NIT if they get there. The Auburn Tigers that is.

How is he palming it without his thumb on the ball.

Players can avoid a carrying violation by keeping their palms facing the floor while dribbling. Most basketball players slide their hand to one side of the ball when dribbling to better control the ball, directing it from left to right and vice-versa. So long as the ball does not come to rest this is perfectly legal. Moreover, dribbling this way allows more control and easier ball-handling. The problem arises when the ball-handler slides their hand too far down the side of the ball, having their hand below the ball.

To be sure, we would have to see the video of that moment. it looks to me as though he has his fingers below the mid point of the ball and is pulling it rather than dribbling it. You have seen guys cheat this way so often you have the idea that the thumb must be part of the call.

Hornsby is palming the ball in the photo. That's the only way guys that size can pretend to handle the ball. Palming and traveling in college and pro basketball are almost the same as the Atlanta Braves strike zone back in the day. Now, everyone 6 8" can pretend to be a guard. They don't have to actually dribble. Any guard 5 10 could take the ball from a big guard if they had to actually dribble. I know, "get off my lawn".

The expectations are too big and ridiculous. Get over it.
