The throwout bearing failed. I can't see any reason that the bearing would have failed due to anything other than it being a defective bearing...
About the only thing that would cause that would be someone holding in the clutch for too long causing the bearing to overheat and come apart eventually, but that seems unlikely. Probably just poor quality materials since it made it 100k miles.
