Houston basketball coach Kelvin Sampson lost his cool on Tuesday night as he stormed the court and berated all three referees during his team’s win over Oklahoma State. 

With 15:08 remaining in the game, Sampson beelined to the other end of the court after a push in the back was not called on Houston’s opponents.

The 68-year-old began screaming at one referee and was quickly ejected before taking his turn yelling at the other two officials. 

He angrily pointed his finger as he continued arguing against the no-call. 

Sampson had to be restrained by his players and assistant coaches and ushered off the floor.
