Kevin Ollie ejected after controversial no-call (Video)

Kevin-Ollie-ejectedUConn head coach Kevin Ollie was ejected from a loss to Louisville on Saturday night after a controversial no-call went the Cardinals’ way. With roughly 13 minutes remaining in the game and the Huskies trailing by nine, UConn’s Niels Giffey gave a shot fake that appeared to draw a blatant foul. The whistle never blew.

Ollie, who thought a shooting foul should have been called to give his player three free throws, went ballistic. He sprinted down toward the baseline to argue and was assessed a double technical. The former NBA guard more than got his money’s worth after being tossed.

Ollie’s reaction may have been over the top, but there’s no arguing that Giffey was fouled. Dick Vitale certainly thought it was a foul, and anyone who watches the replay can see that there was contact. Ollie was right to be furious that a call like that was missed in a game that his team was trying to climb back into.
