Black got off the bench and headed to the court, leading to his ejection, and there were double-technicals called on Will Barton and Tennessee State's Michael Green. Even a Memphis fan was ejected for yelling at the officials.
When the dust settled, Barton hit both free throws to give Memphis an 87-81 lead.
