I’m not sure what’s going on in college basketball this season, but a lot of guys are getting comfortable throwing hands and punches at their opponent, like its not illegal.
Today in a fierce SEC matchup between Ole Miss and Missouri, an Ole Miss player really lost his temper, surprising thing is, it wasn’t the Rebel you were expecting.
No it wasn’t Marshall Henderson. At the time Missouri was blowing Ole Miss out by 22 with seven minutes left. Missouri’s Alex Oriakhi grabbed the foot of Ole Miss’ Reginald Buckner after falling to the floor on a rebound.
Buckner tripped and fell, and wasn’t pleased from there. He jumped at Oriakhi and pushed him. Missouri’s Bowers then pushed Buckner.
Buckner then lost his mind, and punched Bowers. Buckner was ejected, Oriakhi was given a flagrant foul for starting the melee, and Ole Miss commensed to getting blown out.
