Sean Woods tears into one of his Morehead State players


Even though Morehead State battled Kentucky until the end before losing 81-70 on Wednesday, their performance will be overshadowed by head coach Sean Woods yelling at one of his players.

Down eight points with just under six minutes remaining, Devon Atkinson was called for his fifth foul. When heading to the bench, Woods got in Atkinson’s face and tore into the senior guard.

Woods nearly made Atkinson cry after pushing him and then screaming in his face for over a minute. Reminds you of the good ol’ days of Bob Knight yelling at Steve Alford.

The day before the game, Woods, who played basketball at Kentucky, had this to say about the program and his explanation of the entitlement of the Kentucky players:

“These kids nowadays are just so different. When I was coming up, we were humble. Very humble. I think because of the success that Cal has created — which is not a bad thing, it’s a great thing — it just lets you know what Kentucky basketball is right now. But I’m just one of those kids really, really am a blueblood Kentucky guy at heart. There’s just a certain way and a certain look Kentucky basketball players should have, and not have such a sense of entitlement. I think today, it’s still an honor to wear that uniform.”

Update: Sean Woods has been suspended one game for his conduct
