Reid sent referee Tommy Nunez tumbling to the court and was then ejected with 2:56 remaining. That started Utah’s rally, which led to a 59-53 victory Sunday night. After stealing the ball from Poeltl, who was driving to the basket, Reid tried dribbling upcourt. But a lunging Poeltl seemed to bump Reid, and the Oregon State forward slipped and fell to the floor.

Reid complained that there was no foul call, and while he got up, it appeared that he made eye contact with Nunez and stuck his right leg out. Nunez went right down. Reid was assessed a Flagrant 2, and Brandon Taylor made the free throw to give Utah a 53-52 lead — its first lead of the game.

The Beavers (11-5, 2-3 Pac-12) were outscored 6-1 the rest of the way. This was the Beavers third loss in four games, and drops their record to 2-3 within the Pac-12.

Here is video of the play in question:

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is expected to review the incident Monday.
