Kansas State faced off against in-state rivals Kansas last night as they looked to overcome the odds and beat the number eight seed.
The Wildcats actually managed to beat the Jayhawks 70-63 at the Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan and the winning fans stormed on to the court to celebrate the win.
Things got a bit ugly from there however as Kansas' head coach Bill Self ended up being pinned against the scorers table in the crush while a K-State ran and barged into Kansas forward Jamari Traylor who was trying to make his way off the court.
That fan that jump-checked Traylor won't be enjoying his 15 minutes of fame however, with K-State Campus police searching for him.
Kansas coach Self wasn't too happy with the fans either, saying that the practice has to stop and that he was concerned for the safety of his players rather than himself, despite him being pinned by the crowd.
"It’s fine if you want to celebrate when you beat us, that’s your business," Self said. "That’s fine. But at least it shouldn’t put anybody at risk from a safety standpoint. Somebody is going to hit a player, the player is going to retaliate, you're going to have lawsuits—it's not right. At least (celebrate) around center court."
Kansas State athletic director John Currie apologized to the Kansas basketball team saying that the school’s security failed to get into the proper position quickly enough to prevent fans from coming onto the court. He added that details of fans involved in wrongdoing will be passed on to the police.
We start off in the NFL, where Adrian Peterson's agent has allegedly gotten in a confrontation with a Minnesota Vikings official. Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, apparently had to be separated from Vikings vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski, with Dogra screaming that Peterson would never play for the Vikings again.
Over to the NBA now, where James Harden stepped up his MVP campaign. The shooting guard recorded a triple double as his Houston Rockets side beat the Timberwolves by eleven points last night.
To baseball now, where Alex Rodriguez returned to Yankees practice yesterday. A-Rod has been out of the game for nearly two years after a PED suspension where he was linked to the Biogenesis scandal.
