Auburn's Chad Baker-Mazara gets early ejection for throwing elbow against Yale

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Auburn's Chad Baker-Mazara was ejected for a Flagrant 2 foul less than four minutes into the fourth-seeded Tigers' first-round NCAA Tournament game against No. 13 seed Yale on Friday.

After a lengthy review, officials announced the foul against Baker-Mazara and sent him to the locker room. A few minutes later, Baker-Mazara posted on social media, "I believe in my boys they got em!!"

Replays showed that Baker-Mazara appeared to throw an elbow toward Yale's August Mahoney as the pair ran downcourt. Mahoney immediately tried to get the attention of officials and once play stopped with 16:59 left, officials went to the replay monitor.

Baker-Mazara averages 10.3 points per game.
