Officiating causes Arizona’s Sean Miller to lose his cool
Sean Miller clearly didn’t agree with the officiating.
In a tight game with the Oregon Ducks Saturday, Miller was visibly upset following an offensive foul called on Allonzo Trier.

“The play before halftime I almost had an out of body experience, I couldn’t remember where I was,” Miller said after the game. “I thought I was having a stroke in the locker room because I thought I saw the ball go off of them.
“No official is perfect, but that is one they probably missed.”
Miller’s near “out of body experience” included a stare down with officials before he headed into the locker room.
Even when he smiles, he’s mad.
In the second half, Miller continued his tirade when he responded to Deandre Ayton’s technical with a — subtle — head-to-scoring-table move.

He eventually turned on himself.
Miller didn’t get a technical for his antics, but he did get a big response from social media.
But even through all the madness, Arizona was able to hold on at home, winning 90-83.
