UCLA’s Ben Howland Tosses Jacket Into Crowd [VIDEO]

UCLA head basketball coach Ben Howland was ticked off (to say the least) about a call during the Pac-12 Tournament championship game.

Oregon beat UCLA 78-69 to capture the Pac-12 Tournament championship on Saturday night.  UCLA head coach Ben Howland wasn’t exactly elated with a call that went against the Bruins in the first half.  UCLA trailed 25-19 when freshman Shabazz Muhammad was called for a charging foul.  Howland didn’t agree.

Ben Howland proceeded to execute a whirling-dervish hip toss of his jacket into the stands.  Howland was hit with a technical foul.  Amazingly, it was the first technical foul that Ben Howland was issued in his 10 years as UCLA’s head coach.  At least he found a way to pick up a tech in style.
