Michigan basketball coach Juwan Howard was ejected from today’s Big Ten Tournament game against Maryland after a confrontation with Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon, during which observers say Turgeon took a massive shot at the Wolverines basketball program.
Observers believe they heard Turgeon tell Howard, “Don’t hang the banner because your banners come down” in reference to the 2020-21 Michigan Big Ten title and the school’s past issues with the Ed Martin scandal and banners coming down at the Crisler Center.
And then it was on! Near fisticuffs. Instant bad blood for the next 20 years at least. Throw hands! Let’s get it on!
Juwan Howard was ejected during the last timeout.

You can hear Turgeon on TV yelling at Howard "don't hang the banner because your banners come down."
