Richard Pitino tosses jacket, draws first technical foul
It was freezing cold outside in Minneapolis on Thursday night, but tempers got red hot inside the Barn during the second half of Minnesota’s upset of No. 11 Ohio State.
Play began to get chippy midway through the second half as Ohio State forward LaQuinton Ross got tied up with Minnesota forward Oto Osenieks. Ross proceeded to shove Osenieks, which led to Minnesota coach Richard Pitino throwing his sport coat into the crowd and being called for his first technical foul as the Gophers’ head coach.
Fans reacted by throwing food and drinks onto the court, as play was stopped temporarily to clean up the mess and sort out the technical fouls.
