Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway was not happy with ending of his team’s NCAA tourney game against FAU.
While up one point, with 15 seconds left in the game, Memphis gave up a terrible turnover at midcourt.

FAU was able to capitalize and scored on the next possession and scored the game-winning bucket.

Immediately at the end of the game, Hardaway was caught throwing his water bottle on the court in frustration.

Apparently, Hardaway was angry Memphis wasn’t granted a timeout while scrambling for the ball during the previous play.
