Mike Montgomery wasn't too pleased during a timeout on Sunday.His Cal Bears were trailing 44-32 against USC and he decided to show his displeasure by sending a message to the team. Unfortunately for leading scorer Allen Crabbe, that message was directed at him.Watch as the Bears head coach shoves Crabbe with two hands in his chest as the team huddles up during a break in the action. The incident came with 16:32 remaining in the second half. As you can see, Crabbe didn't initially take the shoving very well as he had to be restrained by teammates. Eventually, Crabbe walked away from the bench to cool off.“Coach used his way to motivate me,” Crabbe said after the game. “There’s nothing wrong with it; spur of the moment. He was trying to motivate me. Everything is fine. He’s my coach.” The motivational tactic seemed to work as the Bears went on to go on a 44-24 run to close out the game -- final score: Cal 76, USC 68.Crabbe was instrumental in the comeback victory by scoring 14 points after the incident took place. He poured in 23 points overall.Montgomery and the school has since apologized for the hasty contact.Via The Big Lead
