MONTREAL (KSNW) – With emotions running high, the Wichita State men’s basketball team outscored McGill 29-13 in the fourth quarter on Tuesday, en route to a 77-71 come-from-behind exhibition victory in Montreal.
The Shockers were behind 68-56 in the final minute of the third period, but scored the next 10 points. WSU’s press resulted in seven McGill turnovers in the fourth quarter.
With tension mounting in a physical matchup, WSU coach Gregg Marshall landed his second technical foul in the 2nd half and was ejected.
Cellphone video shows he started shouting and charging toward two of the referees. Marshall had to be held back as he tried to confront the refs multiple times. He was eventually accompanied off the court by Wichita State staff.
When the dust cleared, WSU’s Zach Brown finished with a team-high 14 points, and McDuffie, Darral Willis Jr. and Conner Frankamp contributed 13 points each. Landry Shamet finished with 11.
With Tuesday’s victory, the Shockers improved to 2-1 on their four-game exhibition tour. They’ll face the IndiSports All-Stars in Wednesday’s finale at 3:45 p.m. CT.
