Iowa State got its second consecutive big non-conference win on Wednesday night defeating BYU on the road 90-88, but not without same drama late in the game. After Iowa State’s best player, Melvin Ejim, fouled out in the 4th quarter with under two minutes, the 6-foot-6 forward gave the middle finger to the BYU fans. Here’s a close up pic. Ejim will certainly be hearing from the Big 12 office first thing tomorrow morning. Ejim with the old "fake-sit-down-to-middle-finger-on-national-television" move. — Jonathan (@JJ113088) November 21, 2013 photos: @bubbaprog, @tdawgcougs
