O.J. Mayo falls victim to Euro soccer star masquerading as high school referee
Update: I guess the video has been taken down on Youtube. So here's the new link
High School phenom O.J. Mayo has gotten himself into trouble. From what I can see it seems to be the result of an overly dramatic referee.
Mayo received two technical fouls in the contest, and by the West Virginia Secondary School Activities Commission rule, he would have to miss Huntington's next two games -- Tuesday against nationally ranked Artesia from Lakewood, Calif., at Duke University in Durham, N.C., and Friday against Scott County (Ky.) at the University of Kentucky. Huntington is the nation's No. 1 ranked team in three of four polls and is top-ranked in West Virginia.
Mayo scored on a breakaway dunk over Capital's Tyrone Goard with 5:15 left in the game that gave Huntington a 61-43 lead -- the largest spread of the game -- and was issued a technical foul for taunting by referee Mike Lazo. Mayo retreated to the other end of the court but continued to argue with Goard and other Capital players, and Lazo gave the 6-foot-5 guard a second technical, his fifth overall foul. Mayo followed Lazo to the scorers table to dispute the call and video of the incident showed Mayo bump into the official from behind and Lazo fell to the court.
Ok, three things:
- Mayo is a man playing with boys (includes refs)
- Sweet dunk
- Some might call it a 'bump' ... I call it a 'flop'
You be the judge. Great find as always by The Postmen.
