Barely five minutes had passed in the second half of Saturday's round-of-32 matchup between Cincinnati and Kentucky before Bearcats forward Octavius Ellis was caught up in some on-court animosity.

Ellis, who was sidelined for most of the first half, initiated a foul against Kentucky's Trey Lyles, whose teammates were not pleased. Ellis was then fouled twice by the Wildcats. 

This isn't the first time this tournament that the 6'10" forward has been at the center of controversy. Ellis was ejected from Thursday night's game for committing a flagrant-2 foul with his elbow strike against Purdue's A.J. Hammons. 

Needless to say, it appears Ellis isn't afraid to play dirty for the title.
