Iowa St.’s Ejim Flips Off BYU Students
Iowa State forward Melvin Ejim notched 21 points, four rebounds and three assists against BYU on Wednesday night before fouling out with 1:42 remaining. On his way back to the bench, Cougar fans started shouting, “Left! Right! Left! Right!” - nothing out of the usual.
Ejim wanted none of that, however, as evidenced by the bird he flipped the crowd before taking a seat.
Not long after the game, Ejim took to Twitter to apologize for his actions.
Definitely lost my composure today. I apologize to the byu student section and Iowa state university. What I did was inexcusable and rude.

Watching his teammates pull out a 90-88 win likely made it much easier to apologize.
