Why have instant replay?

Watching the end of the Arizona/Colorado men's basketball game made me throw up in my mouth.

Colorado was tied with No. 3 Arizona, 80-80, in the final seconds and should have won the game on this buzzer-beating 3-pointer. Replays clearly show that CU guard Sabatino Chen scored this 3-pointer, but somehow the refs that reviewed this shot reversed the basket.

Arizona won, of course, 92-83 in OT. 

Now where was the game? Arizona, of course. And these weren't even the replacement officials.

The point of instant replay is to correct the mistakes the humans made, not to add another layer of stupid.
