Start of the fourth quarter, they're up 90-30 (rough numbers), and they send their starters out. Coach calls our guys back to the bench and we proceed to walk off the court.

That is refusing to play.

Coach took a two game suspension for that.
Kudos to your coach. I know of a few coaches who would have sent the goons out rather than take that passive approach.
