Video: John Calipari gets ejected against Arkansas
Kentucky coach John Calipari is no stranger to getting ejected, and it happened to him again on Saturday.
Calipari’s Wildcats were struggling in the second half, on the wrong end of a 13-2 Arkansas run to tie the game. Calipari was infuriated by an illegal screen called against Kentucky forward EJ Montgomery, as it had seemed that Montgomery was standing still when the contact took place.
Calipari was given a technical for arguing, but kept disputing the call and received a second technical and ejection.

It’s far from the most animated we’ve seen Calipari, plus he lasted into the second half, but he had to have seen that coming. Maybe it was an attempt to give his team a breather and let them collect themselves. If so, it worked, as Kentucky got it together and won 73-66.
