Nick Emery Of BYU Blindside Sucker Punch To A Utah Player (Vid)
BYU freshman Nick Emery had the cheap shot of the century during Wednesday’s matchup against Utah. Emery wound up and knocked Brandon Taylor down with a blindside hook. The punch kept Taylor laying on the court for several moments. Emery was ejected after officials went to the monitor for review.
According to Utah coach (and former NBA player) Larry Krystkowiak, Emery taunted Taylor after knocking him out, saying, “Stay on the ground.”
Emery is facing a likely suspension from the NCAA for the incident. Utah went on to win the game, 83-75.
