Finally found video of the undercut from Friday. Warning - it's ugly. Despite the announcer's take that it "obviously wasn't intentional" (and I agree with the premise that it's unlikely a high school kid would undercut someone intentionally), it's definitely not obvious from the video alone.
North HS standout, Conner Frankamp was injured on a scary crash during his game in Dodge City against Scott City.
Apparently the kid who did it bragged about it later.

I never played at a high level but if someone pulled that crap on my teammate they are going to eat an elbow right in the eye later. That is bush league at best. It also baffles me that basketball is so worked up about people getting cleared out with Elbows but basically encourages dangerous undercuts by calling so many charges (not applicable to that situation obviously).
It's not just the undercuts that then get called as charges, I'm growing increasingly frustrated watching guys who are clearly on breakaways being slashed, hacked, or just about tackled. I wish that this would be a "point of emphasis" waaaaaaaay more than the elbow thing, which was a total knee-jerk reaction to one awful situation, and I don't want another knee-jerk reaction, but situations like the Rotnei Clarke injury seem to me to be becoming the common situation. I know that no one wants to just allow a thunderous dunk, but these are so obviously intentional, and oftentimes flagrant, fouls that it's really irritating and frightening.
