Tensions between Baylor and Texas boiled over late in overtime when Isiah Taylor and Royce O’Neale got all tangled up while battling for a loose ball.
Players from both benches raced to the action at center court, which is a no-no in college basketball. One long officials’ conference later, a grand total of seven players were ejected.
The Longhorns would go on to win, 61-59, thanks to a buzzer-beating floater by Taylor.
See, kids, sometimes it pays to not get tossed early.
The two teams did not let the game’s end cool tempers, however. Plenty of yelling and carrying on took place after the final whistle because everything is bigger in Texas except the sense of sportsmanship.
