Colorado and Arizona State got a little beef stewing in the closing moments of today’s Pac-12 Tournament game. Up by nine points with eight seconds to play on their way to the win, Buffaloes guard Tyler Bey went for a dunk, and the Sun Devils didn’t react too kindly.

Colorado coach Tad Boyle came off the sidelines to help break up the skirmish. Before he could even get there, though, he tweaked something in his leg:

“The doctor usually doesn’t give an injury report on the coach, but the doctor said I’ve either torn or strained a calf muscle,” Boyle, who was in a walking boot after the game, told ESPN. “But it felt like somebody hit me with a golf ball or shotgun there as I ran out. So I don’t know what happened. But it doesn’t feel too good.”

Hopefully more like being hit with a golf ball than with a shotgun.
