Houston was leading Arizona at the McKale Center by a score of 63-51 when Aubrey Coleman decided to stomp on Chase Budinger’s face. As it turns out, that’s just the wakeup call the Wildcats needed.
As you can see from the video his actions were pretty blatant, and Coleman didn’t seem all that upset with himself when he was sent back to the locker room. Arizona captured the momentum following the ejection of the Cougars’ second leading scorer, and Jordan Hill propelled the home team to a 96-90 comeback win in overtime. Hill scored 30 to pace Arizona who also got 23 from Nic Wise and 15 from the stompee himself.
