Ole Miss Forward Reginald Buckner Ejected After Throwing Punch in Skirmish Against Missouri (Video)

Any SEC game is going to be heated, whether or not it’s a football game. That proved to be true on Saturday, with Ole Miss travelling to Missouri to take on the Tigers.

With Mizzou up big against the Rebels in the second half, Tigers center Alex Oriakhi didn’t take too kindly to a box-out by Ole Miss’ big man Reginald Buckner. After losing his balance and tumbling to the floor, Oriakhi reached out and tripped Buckner, sending him to the ground as well.

Referees whistled the play dead, but Buckner wasn’t done. In a shoving match with a Missouri player, he appeared to throw a punch and was promptly ejected for his actions. Missouri went on to win big, but check out the skirmish in the video below.
