Less than three minutes into the third quarter Edmondson-Westside’s Head Coach Darnell Dantzler pulled his team off the court in a Baltimore City Division I contest against #10 Lake Clifton Lakers tonight. Coach Danztler wasn’t happy with the offciating throughout a good portion of the game. The veteran Red Storm coach received his first technical foul in the first quarter. As the game proceeded, Coach Danztler continued to have intense conversations with the officials.
Down 39-26 with 5:15 seconds left in the third, Coach Danztler had another heated exchange with the officials. While walking back to the bench, Danztler told an official “if I receive another tech I will take my team off the court.” The ref hit Dantzler with his second technical foul and the coach cashed in on his promise (See video below).
