At the end of a tight, low-scoring game, the Auburn Tigers had themselves lined up a three-point shot to tie the game at the end of regulation. Unfortunately, there was a foul call that was missed that got Tigers coach Bruce Pearl livid.
As you can see in the clip below through all the setups, Tigers guard Wendell Green Jr. appears to get hit in the hand/wrist by Volunteers forward Olivier Nkhamhoua on the shot with less than a couple seconds left.
And that left Pearl and the Tigers up in arms, but the coach wanted to fight (or confront) whatever official was near him.
The second-ranked Volunteers were able to escape the 25th-ranked Tigers in a 46-43 victory. But for Pearl, it will be definitely a game that he would want back later in the season.
