Glen Rice Jr ejected from Game 4 for pushing Kevin Ferrer
MANILA, Philippines - Glen Rice Jr will not be able to help his TNT KaTropa for the rest of Game 4 of their best-of-5 semis series against the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel after being ejected late in the first quarter.
Rice Jr, who was one of the main reasons for TNT’s big lead early after putting up 5 assists, 3 rebounds, two points and a steal, was thrown out of the game after an altercation with Ginebra’s Kevin Ferrer.
TNT was leading 35-23 with 1:41 remaining when Ferrer pressed up against Rice Jr. The KaTropa import lost his cool and shoved Ferrer to the ground and threw the ball at the lanky forward but missed.
