The Chicago Sky were downed by the Washington Mystics Sunday evening, 100-86, but much of the focus was on Sky center, Astou Ndour getting ejected.

View the controversial play, above.

After arguing a no-call in the second quarter, Ndour was pleading her case to official Kevin Fahy. While Fahy was making his way to the scorer's table, Ndour had her armed extended to show where she believed contact was made on her shot. Fahy walked into the outstretched arm, offered a stun expression to Ndour, and immediately issued her an ejection from the game.

While many Mystics fans in attendance cheered on the sudden turn of events, the Sky players and coaching staff were irate to say the least.

The ejection was reviewed, then confirmed, and Ndour's night ended early with just five points in 10 minutes of play.

Rule 12, section V, article d, of the WNBA rulebook specifically states that "A technical foul shall be assessed for unsportsmanlike tactics such as physically contacting an official." The technical foul was Ndour's second as she was assessed one second earlier for the initial argument of the call.
