Seton Hall was eliminated by Texas Tech tonight in the opening game of the NIT, but at least the Pirates went down punching.
Herb Pope, the team's most prolific low-post player, was ejected about five minutes into the game after he decided to throw a swift punch to the groin of Red Raider forward Darko Cohadarevic.
Yep, that will get you tossed.
Texas Tech went on to dismantle the hosts, 87-69.
The is the second incident in the span of two weeks in which a Red Raiders basketball player has had a punch thrown at them. During the women's Big 12 tournament, Baylor's Brittney Griner connected with Jordan Barncastle's face. Griner received a two-game suspension for her actions.
Dangerous, dangerous time to be a Red Raider hoops player.
