The Pac-12 Tournament got heated on Wednesday afternoon as Colorado finished out a win over Arizona State.

With the Buffaloes up nine with under 30 seconds left, Tyler Bey finished an alley-oop with the shot clock was winding down. Since Arizona State wasn’t playing any defense on the play, Colorado wasn’t exactly following proper basketball etiquette with the dunk.

Arizona State senior guard Tra Holder took issue with Bey’s dunk and pushed Bey to the ground, forcing a minor skirmish and a technical foul on Holder to finish out the game. To prevent his players from further escalating the situation, Colorado head coach Tad Boyle ran on the floor and appeared to injure himself while doing so.

Boyle left in a walking boot after telling reporters that he injured his calf while running onto the floor:

Maybe stretch before you starting coaching, Coach Boyle. Just a thought.
