Duquesne Head Coach Unleashes Hellish Rage on Officials During Bad Loss

Well, there's a fine example to set for your young, impressionable student-athletes.
The Dukes were all tied up with the Nittany Lions at 67 apiece with under 10 seconds left in the game when things went completely off the rails.
Check this shit out:

Someone needs a nap.
Coach Dambrot clearly didn't agree with the blocking foul called on his Dukes and made his thoughts abundantly clear to the entire officiating crew before being physically restained by most of his team and coaching staff.
Embued by the holiday spirit, the officials responded with two technicals and an ejection.
You may be wondering how many free throws the Nittany Lions would receive in this situation:
Penn State (-6) gets to shoot SIX straight free throws with 5.2 seconds left on the clock and the game tied at 67-67... They make all six and beat the Duquesne Dukes 73-67 while also forcing a push on the spread. pic.twitter.com/bdvf2Cv1LT— The Action Network (@ActionNetworkHQ) December 20, 2018
That's so not good.
And yes, that is the mother of all bad beats, with Penn State inexpicably getting the push with those six free throws.
Some sports investors were even more unfortunate.
Yo @notthefakeSVP, all-time Bad Beats. Penn St 73, Duquesne 67. Double tech, plus 2 FTs. Line was 5.5.— Andrew Fillipponi (@ThePoniExpress) December 20, 2018
Penn State/Duquesne are tied at 67 with seconds to go. Penn State can't hit a free throw all night but gets a call with 5 seconds left. Duquesne's coach gets tossed, Penn State ultimately gets to shoot six free throws as a result, all are made to win by 6 with a 5-point spread..— Ben Jones (@Ben_Jones88) December 20, 2018
As for the tortured Dambrot, there are meetings for this sort of thing.
Organized therapy won't get that game back, though.
