LaVar Ball overshadowed a great morning for Kentucky recruit Immanuel Quickley.
Quickley had already put in 23 points when Ball was ejected and the game was called off early:
The third-ranked point guard in the class of 2018, according to Scout.com, Quickley erupted for 23 points as he repeatedly knifed his way into the paint, converted close-range opportunities and drew contact to secure trips to the free-throw line.
All told, Quickley—whose most likely landing spot is considered Kentucky—shot 6-of-10 from the field and 10-of-13 from the charity stripe.
According to reports, Ball threatened to pull his team off the court after disagreeing with a female referee. Ball said the ref needed to “stay in her lane.”
LaVar Ball threatened to pull his Big Baller Brand AAU team off the court on Friday morning after receiving a technical foul, eventually leading to the female referee being replaced mid-game.
“She’s got a vendetta,” Ball told ESPN after the game.
“She needs to stay in her lane because she ain’t ready for this,” he added.
The referee declined comment on what happened.
Here’s what Ball had to say after the game:
