Green Bay Beat Loyola On A Last-Second Overtime Three-Pointer, Then Tackled The Ref [UPDATE]

A rumble-tumble Horizon League matchup between Green Bay and Loyola-Chicago ended with a Kam Cerroni three-pointer as time elapsed in overtime, launching an explosion off the Phoenix bench in which a referee took a nasty fall.


As noted by the Loyola broadcasters you hear in the above clip, officials could have cited Green Bay for a technical foul for any number of reasons, as there was still 0.4 seconds remaining in the game (though, admittedly, the Ramblers would still have had to inbound the ball and make a shot in that amount of time regardless of the outcome of technical foul shots). As it turned out, the referees elected not to cite Green Bay and they went home with the 73-70 win. [Horizon League]
