UConn coach Kevin Ollie was ejected in front of a wild Huskies crowd at Gampel Pavilion Saturday night after arguing a non-call that, let’s face it, was a terrible decision by the referee. With 13:02 remaining and the Huskies trailing Louisville by nine, Ollie went ballistic after forward Niels Giffey was hit on a pump-fake by Cardinals forward Wayne Blackshear but received no foul call in his favor. UConn fans also went crazy.
Ollie was given a double technical after berating the officials and Louisville was awarded four free throws (the Cardinals made two) and the ball. Ollie was also escorted off of the court by a police officer.
