Tim Floyd gets an ejection and an escort in UTEP loss

By Cindy Boren

It isn't often that a coach gets ejected from a game and is escorted from the premises by an armed officer of the law.

But then it isn't often that a game features five technical fouls and 45 trips to the free-throw line by one team. East Carolina won 83-76, but the story was the epic meltdown by UTEP Coach Tim Floyd, which began when he angrily removed his jacket and windmilled it with a bit of panache to the bench. After that he grew angrier and angrier ...

Next time, maybe he should just throw a chair.
