    The ref looks like a major drama queen.

    I'm not sure he deserved the second one. Had he not hung around the refs, it wouldn't have mattered. Next time, head to the bench and let the coach take care of it from there.

    It's rather sad that a high school kid already has a posse.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Unfortunately, I havent been able to see HHS this year. I was hoping to get tickets when they come here to Parkersburg next week, but I have to go for CPR training that night.

    As far as the video goes, WSAZ is going nuts. I'm pretty sure that is all that has been shown all weekend. There were 44 fouls called in that game, 32 in the first half alone. For the most part, there was some home cooking in Kanawha County on Friday night.

    That ref is a disgrace, he should never be allowed to referee a game again in his life.

    Just another loser trying to make Sports Center. Heck I bet he sues Mayo for damages...(future earnings.)

    Re: OJ Mayo ejected, "knocks down" ref

    Now that I've had a chance to watch the video, the ref does look like he learned how to take a dive from the school of Italian soccer. That being said, I still stand by my rule that you don't touch refs, ever. Mayo should have never come up on the ref. If you let guys come up on refs to argue calls, you allow players to get into a position where they can use their physical stature to intimidate the ref. In any other sport, if a guy so much as looks at a ref or umpire funny, it's enough to get the guy run. All through organized sports, my coaches always told me, never argue with the ump/ref. If you have a problem with a call, tell coach and let coach handle it. I just can't understand how organized basketball allows players to act like complete jerks and disrespect the refs when a call doesn't go their way.

    Flopping or not, he shouldn't have come up to the ref. Now as far as the ref flopping, I think that whoever is responsible for sanctioning high school referees should look into his performance in this game and decide whether they want a guy who acts like that calling their games. But its a separate issue from Mayo's acts in my mind. Mayo shouldn't have been near the guy in the first place.

    The ref does look like he is a bit of a drama queen, but I think Mayo got what he deserved. That looked like it could have escalated quickly. He got T'ed, then circles a few guys, repeat.

    Didn't I read something on here about a HS basketball in Ohio getting out of hand with arrests? I'm sure things like that were on the refs minds.

    I couldn't see for sure, but it appeared that their feet got entangled by the way the ref went down.

    Cabell County Circuit Judge Dan O'Hanlon has issued an injunction. Mayo and the other suspended HHS players will be taking the court tonight.

    For anyone that cares, Mayo and the Highlanders defeated Artesia 73-66 last night. The court injunction allows Mayo and the other players ejected to be eligible until a hearing on Feb. 9th.

    Guess that means they'll get to play this weekend when they meet our Scott Co. Cardinals at Memorial Coliseum in Lex.

    Mayo looks like little more than an out of control thug in that scene. I hope that is the exception for him, but that certainly looks like a young man very, very full of himself.
