Former Mountaineer Devin Ebanks Fined By NBA

Posted:

Former West Virginia University basketball star Devin Ebanks was fined $25,000 by the NBA following his actions in Game One of the Lakers second round playoff matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Ebanks shoved Royal Ivey of the Thunder and had some choice words for the referee sparking his ejection from the game. He followed that up by hitting a chair on the Lakers bench and removing his jersey as he walked off the court towards the Lakers locker room.

WVU Head Coach Bob Huggins took to twitter to support his former player. Huggins tweeted, "Let's back our guy @DevinEbanks3 and the Lakers. He learns from his frustrations. He is truly a Mountaineer and cares about West Virginia."

Ebanks played only a few minutes in the Game One blowout loss to the Thunder. His ejection happened with roughly two and a half minutes remaining in the game and the Lakers down by 33 points.

Ebanks did not play in Game Two Wednesday night. It was Head Coach Mike Brown's decision not to put Ebanks in the game.

Game Three between the Lakers and Thunder is set for Friday night in Los Angeles.
