University Of New Orleans Player Chokes Teammate During NCAA Tournament Play-In Game

March Madness is officially here, folks.

During last night’s play-in game, University of New Orleans forward Travin Thibodeaux choked one of his teammates during a timeout.

Thibodeaux was so angry with teammate Christavious Gill after he didn’t pass him the ball in their matchup against Mount Saint Mary’s that during the following timeout, Thibodeaux grabbed Gill by the neck before being pulled off by officials.

Thibodeaux, who is 6’5″, was reprimanded by coaches by being benched for the rest of the game.

New Orleans went on to lose the game to Mount Saint Mary’s by a¬†final score of 67-66.
