Crazy start. At 18:43 of the first half, Marcanvis Hymon of Ole Miss gets a technical.
Then at 16:36, Nick Richards gets one, on a play that didn't look that bad, but you wonder if the refs were concerned about this game getting to physical to soon. The officials took a long time after the technical on Richards.
The end result was Hyman was ejected from the game because he gets a dead ball technical. Two and you are tossed. Hyman plays only 1:43. After all the free throws, UK leads 12-7.
