Emotions got the better of TNT import Glen Rice Jr. on Sunday and was ejected in the first quarter of TNT’s all-important Game 4 tussle against Ginebra.

The high-scoring reinforcement threw the ball to a fallen Kevin Ferrer with 1:41 left in the opening frame with the KaTropa leading, 35-23.

After the Gin Kings called timeout, Rice continued to trashtalk with the Gin Kings bench as TNT personnel tried to restrain him.

He was then attested with a flagrant foul penalty one and a technical foul, ending his stint in Game 4 quickly.

Rice had two points, three rebounds, five assists, and a steal in his 10 minutes of play for the KaTropa.

He is averaging 31.3 points, 11.5 rebounds, and 5.3 assists for the conference.

TNT team manager Virgil Villavicencio escorted him back to the team’s dugout, but quickly left the Big Dome midway through the second quarter.

TNT, which has its season on the line, is still on the driver’s seat, 66-52, against Ginebra at halftime.
