Video: Texas' Cameron Ridley And Kansas' Joel Embiid Get Tied Up, Embiid Gets Tossed To The Floor

Big battle.

The 25th-ranked Texas Longhorns are playing host to No. 6 Kansas in a huge Big 12 battle in Austin today. One of the great matchups on display will be between Kansas' star freshman Joel Embiid and Longhorns sophomore Cameron Ridley. Early in the game, the players already found themselves locked up after a rebound, and Embiid got tossed to the floor:

It didn't appear to be a malicious play by any means -- Ridley is just a big boy at 6-foot-9 and 285 pounds. This should be a fun game -- and matchup -- to keep an eye on.
