Ben Howland is one of the most active coaches in terms of working the sidelines during games, but he usually maintains his composure. That wasn’t the case on Saturday when the Bruins head coach lost it, took off his suit jacket and threw it into the stands in protest of a call. During the first half of UCLA’s 78-69 loss to Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament championship game in Las Vegas, Bruins freshman Shabazz Muhammad was called for charging while attempting a layup in transition. The Bruins were down by six at the time, which could have factored into Howland’s mini-meltdown. Howland got called for a technical foul for the coat toss, marking the first time he had received a technical foul since taking over the UCLA job in 2003. Howland did get his coat back from the stands, but he was unable to lead his team to victory. The Bruins were looking like a team that could potentially make a Sweet 16 run in the tourney, but that was before Jordan Adams got hurt. Now, they’ll probably just win one game, tops.
