Louisville F Harrell ejected vs Western Kentucky


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. >> Louisville junior Montrezl Harrell is suspended from the fourth-ranked Cardinals’ next game after being ejected Saturday at Western Kentucky for throwing an elbow.

Harrell, an Associated Press preseason All-American first-team selection, became tangled with several Hilltoppers players with 38.7 seconds remaining in the first half. As officials tried to separate players during an ensuing shoving match, an upset Harrell swung an elbow at one Hilltopper and continued yelling after being restrained.

After reviewing video replays, Harrell was assessed a flagrant-2 foul and ejected. Harrell is suspended for the Cardinals’ game on Tuesday against Cal State Northridge. He can return next Saturday against in-state rival and top-ranked Kentucky.

WKU’s D.J. Clayton received a technical foul, along with technicals issued to both benches.
