LSU’s Johnson Unhappy With Late Technical

With 4:45 to go in last night’s game, LSU trailed Mississippi State by 11.  A furious rally cut that lead to a single point with 18 seconds left, but the Bulldogs prevailed in the end 76-71.  Tiger coach Trent Johnson was less than thrilled with officiating that — in his view — helped the Dogs hang on for a homecourt victory.

In the game’s waning seconds he received a technical foul for sharing his views with the officials.  After the game, he explained his displeasure:

“When you’ve got good kids and they struggle and they fight and there’s things going on out there you don’t like, that’s hard…

The game was decided on the boards, but there was a reason for that.  You can’t be as aggressive as you want.  I just want a clarification so I can help my kids.”

Johnson handled that one well.  Good thing.  If he hadn’t he may well have gotten one of the league’s “don’t blast the officials” fines.
