Watch: FSU Coach Leonard Hamilton Got Physical With A Player During A Timeout

Leonard Hamilton gets heated during a timeout.

Florida State looks like it will lose to No. 1 seed Xavier tonight. That may be the least of FSU head coach Leonard Hamilton's worries.

During a timeout in the second half, Hamilton was caught by the TNT cameras getting physical with one of his players. It was a bad look for the veteran head coach.

In the video below, you can see Hamilton grab guard PJ Savoy by the jersey and yank him across the team huddle. It is unclear what happened leading up to this.

Check it out:

You can bet Hamilton will be asked about this post-game. You really can't get physical with one of your guys like that.

Assuming this result holds, Xavier will be heading to the Sweet 16 to take on Gonzaga. That game will be on Thursday, with time TBD.

Florida State will be heading home on the first weekend of the tournament again. They've made the Sweet 16 just once under Hamilton, back in 2011.
