Obekpa hit Butler's Tyler Wideman with his elbow midway through the first half. Wideman left the game but was cleared to return.
Obekpa is third in the nation in blocked shots per game with 3.48. This is the second time this season that he has been ejected from a game. Obekpa was also ejected from the Red Storm's Dec. 14 game against Fordham for picking up two technical fouls in the first half.
