Longhorns' Jonathan Holmes ejected

Texas Longhorns forward Jonathan Holmes was ejected after earning a Flagrant 2 foul for throwing an elbow at an opposing player in the first half of his team's matchup at West Virginia.

Mountaineers forward Devin Williams shoved Holmes in the back with 20 seconds to play in the first half of the game as the Texas senior tried to block him out.

Holmes responded by throwing a hard elbow that hit Williams in the face.

Officials reviewed the play, whistled Holmes for a Flagrant 2 foul and ejected him.

Per NCAA rules, a Flagrant 2 foul is "a personal foul that involves contact with an opponent that is not only excessive, but also severe or extreme while the ball is live."
