WATCH: West Virginia player ejected for tripping player from bench

At least Grayson Allen was actually playing when he tripped people.

Early in the second half of No. 17 Texas Tech’s 81-50 win over West Virginia, West Virginia forward Logan Routt was ejected after he tripped Tech guard Matt Mooney while sitting on the bench.

Mooney tried to block a three-pointer that was shot from the corner and ended up in the West Virginia bench. As he tried to get back on the floor to continue playing, Routt used his legs to hold one of Mooney’s legs, tripping him and, after a review, getting hit with a Flagrant 2 and ejected from the game.

“I didn’t see it personally. Two of our coaches did. The refs did a good job of finding the play,” Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.
