Tim Floyd and Andy Enfield got into a heated confrontation at a reception at Battle 4 Atlantis in the Bahamas on Wednesday that also involved their assistant coaches, according to a report.
Sports Illustrated college basketball writer/reporter Seth Davis was at the reception and reported what happened. Keep in mind that Enfield is the current coach at USC, while Floyd is the coach at UTEP. Floyd used to coach at USC before being let go as part of the OJ Mayo fallout, but he was a candidate for the job that went to Enfield this offseason.
Over the summer, Floyd accused USC of tampering with one of his recruits — Isaac Hamilton — who had signed with UTEP but backed out and eventually enrolled at UCLA. Enfield insulted Floyd in a meeting with boosters, and the insult was recently publicized in a Men’s Journal article.
That all set the stage for what happened Wednesday. Here’s Davis’ tweets to describe the event:
