Oregon State Beavers forward Jarmal Reid was ejected from his team's game against the Utah Utes on Sunday for tripping an official, per Rob Dauster of NBC Sports:

The 6'7" senior had two points and five rebounds in the 59-53 loss. Oregon State suspended Reid for a minimum of four games on Monday.

According to Sean Meagher of the Oregonian, Reid was apparently frustrated with a no-call before the trip. It came at an inopportune time, as the game was tied at 52-52 with 2:56 remaining. The official called a flagrant-2 foul against Reid, and Utah outscored Oregon State 7-1 the rest of the way.

Bleacher Report's C.J. Moore didn't hold back once he realized referee Tommy Nunez was justified in tossing Reid:

This was something you don't see every day in college basketball, or at any level of basketball for that matter. The loss was the second in a row for the Beavers and dropped them to 2-3 in the Pac-12 and 11-5 overall.
