    That was the biggest dive I've seen since watching Portugal at the World Cup.

    Players cannot touch the referee. At all. End Of Story. Period.

    Good to know the legal machinery of West Virginia is ready to leap into lightning action to defend the rights of superstar basketball players to mouth off on the court. Fight the power.

    I didn't even see him pushin' the ref Starman. When he fell, Mayo's hands were out in a "what did I do?" type of way. Didn't even touch him.
    What a flop, that ref is a cockdiwaffle.

    What if he would have punched out Larry Brown?

    Larry Brown is now reffing games? Who knew?

    I can't get the video past the "loading" phase.

    Fucking dude walked up behind the ref, leaning forward with his chest pushed out like he was posing for a fight, and knocked him down. What about that says it wasn't intentional? Nothing. Fucking punk.

    I don't normally like defending pampered, soon to be rich prep stars, but in all honesty, I didn't even see him make contact with the ref. Nor did I see him do anything to deserve the first technical. It would appear to me the refs got on a power trip, which is unfortunately known to happen.

    "Was he ejected before bumping the official?"

    He was hit with two technical fouls, thus meaning ejection, before the incident with the ref. In Ohio - I don't know if it's the case in West Virginia as well - an ejection in any sport means a week's suspension. If that's the case, then the whole basis for the suspension should have had nothing to do with the incident at the scorer's table (not that that shouldn't factor in) as much as he was thrown out of the game in the first place.
