Video: Cal coach Mike Montgomery shoves Allen Crabbe

Below is the video of Cal coach Mike Montgomery shoving his star player, Allen Crabbe, during a timeout in the second half of the Cal vs. USC game on Sunday night.

Montgomery was angry that Crabbe didn't seem focused on the game and was down on himself. The shove actually helped the Cal team as they rallied back from a 15 point deficit to win 76-68.

Crabbe had 23 points and hit crucial back to back three pointers from the top of the key to ignite the Bears' rally.

After the game, Montgomery said,  "I was asking him if he wanted to play. he had no expression. We needed a wake-up call." Crabbe agreed with his coach and said the shove was not a big deal.

Sandy Barbour, Cal's athletic director, released a  statement after the game.

“Sunday’s game was an emotional one for everyone who cares deeply about our men’s basketball program, and the Bears certainly showed tremendous resolve coming back to earn a win over USC. However, it is unacceptable for our coaches to have physical contact with student-athletes regardless of the circumstances. The second-half incident was certainly out of character for Mike Montgomery, and I am confident that something like this will not happen again.”
