VIDEO: New Orleans player chokes teammate in First Four game

Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 9.19.37 PM

We’re just one game into the NCAA tournament and we already have what may be the weirdest moment of the event.

Late in the second half of a close game against Mount St. Mary’s, New Orleans center Travin Thibodeaux appeared to be upset at point guard Christavious Gill for not throwing the ball into him in the post when Thibodeaux was whistled for a three-second violation.

Thibodeaux confronted Gill. Gill shoved Thibodeaux. Thibodeaux choked Gill?

It sure looks like it:

Mount St. Mary’s went on to win, 67-66.
