Idiot Official Calls Bullshit Technical Foul On Ed Cooley

Providence coach Ed Cooley "earned" a technical foul late in the Friars' Round of 64 nightcap against Dayton in Columbus when his fiery timeout speech featured him tossing a chair to the floor. One official took offense—to equipment abuse, apparently—and charged Cooley with a technical foul, adding another Providence team personal and giving the Flyers some extra free throws.


The call came with less than four minutes remaining in an eight-point game, and be sure to watch the replays closely as it's clear the official couldn't have mistaken the chair throw as something directed at him.
