Oregon State senior Jarmal Reid was ejected from the Beavers’ game against Utah on Sunday after he appeared to trip a referee.
After blocking a shot and falling to the ground, Reid appeared to be upset with a no-call. Afterwards, he stuck his right leg out and tripped the nearest official, sending him to the ground. He was immediately assessed a technical and was ejected after a review.
Utah's Brandon Taylor made the subsequent free throw, giving the Utes their first lead of the game at 53–52. Utah would go on to win 59–53.
"It was obviously a fortuitous deal for us," Utah coach Larry Krystkowiak said. "Not a great break for them. It's unfortunate that was part of the game."
Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is expected to review the incident on Monday, according to ESPN’s Andy Katz.
“I will have to review and discuss the entire play with Jarmal,” Beavers coach Wayne Tinkle said. “Obviously we don’t ever want to shed a negative light on our program or university, or conduct ourselves in any manner other than first class, on or off the court.”
