Blake Griffin Gets Tossed By Morgan State's Ameer Ali. Ali Gets Tossed By The Ref [Hip Toss Video]
Ameer Ali got ejected for this hip toss of Blake Griffin during Oklahoma's 82-54 route of Morgan State last night. I have no idea what Ali was thinking, other than he really was getting sick of getting destroyed by Griffin and the Sooners, and wanted to leave the game.
He was immediately tossed, and I wouldn't be surprised to see him suspended for a few games to start next year, which will be his sophomore season.
There's no place in the tourney for crap like this, and hopefully they throw the book at him. It was clearly intentional in my mind, and he could have severely injured Griffin, arguably the best player in the country. Fortunately for Oklahoma, Griffin was fine.
This is just one more reminder that one freak play could change the course of the entire tournament. Let's hope that something like this doesn't happen again.
