Well, that escalated quickly. Two and a half minutes into the game, John Calipari completely lost it after South Carolina’s Michael Carrera crashed the boards. Doug Sirmons called a quick technical on Cal, after which Calipari became furious and his players had to restrain him, leading to a second technical foul and the ejection. Watch it all go down:

This is Calipari’s second ejection at South Carolina in the past two years, the first coming in 2014 during the loss after which Aaron Harrison famously predicted that the rest of the season could still be a “great story.”
What is it about Calipari and Columbia?
