BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California Athletic Director Sandy Barbour says coach Mike Montgomery's two-handed shove of a player during a game is unacceptable and she is confident it will not happen again.
The confrontation occurred during a timeout early in the second half of Cal's 76-68 win over Southern California on Sunday night when Montgomery yelled at star guard Allen Crabbe for nonchalant play and then shoved him in the chest with both hands.
Crabbe had to be forcibly restrained by teammates and briefly left the court before coming back and leading a comeback victory for the Golden Bears (16-9, 8-5).
In the postgame news conference, Montgomery smiled and said his motivation worked. He later apologized in a statement and said he let his emotions get away.
