One of Cincinnati’s star players left Thurdsday’s matchup against Purdue in tears after he was ejected from the game for throwing a forearm at an opposing player, striking him in the neck area.
One of the announcers pointed out that Octavius Ellis, who leads the Bearcats’ in both scoring and rebounding, has had “anger issues all of his career.”
Ellis was slapped with a flagrant-2 foul, which comes with an automatic ejection. He had tears in his eyes as he left the court.
Lucky for him, Ellis will get another chance to help his team advance in the NCAA Tournament as his team defeated Purdue 66-65 in overtime.
