Shockers coach ejected after charging at refs

An exhibition game between Wichita State and McGill University on Tuesday in Montreal took a turn for the unexpected when Shockers men’s basketball coach Gregg Marshall began shouting and charging toward two referees.

According to the Wichita Eagle, the confrontation began after Marshall earned a second technical foul and was ejected in the Shockers’ 77-71 win.

A cellphone video showed Marshall being restrained by Wichita State players and coaching staff as he repeatedly tried to confront the referees.

The video showed Marshall yelling and pointing his finger, and at one point, he marched right up to the face of one of the officials.

Marshall eventually was escorted off the court by Wichita State staff amid a smattering of boos from the small crowd.
