USC big man Chevez Goodwin elbowed Colorado keeper McKinley Wright during the Pac-12 team semifinals on Friday night. Officers called Goodwin a technical foul but allowed him to stay in the game.
The incident happened with 13:50 remaining in the first half. Goodwin swung his elbows holding the ball after the whistle and made heavy contact with Wright, sending Buffaloes top scorer to the scorer.
Wright, who has suffered a concussion in the past, was taken to the locker room for evaluation. He came back into the game with the remaining 7:08 in the half.

Goodwin made CU fans even more of a villain by floating on the other end of the floor after minimal contact a few minutes after the elbow. He received a post-audit failure warning.
Trojans and Buffaloes play for embroidery Saturday’s conference tournament final against the state of Oregon, which upset the Oregon seed in the first half on Friday.
