Thursday night's WAC conference basketball game at Utah Valley got a bit ugly as not only did brawl broke out between some players just as the game ended, but some of the home fans got caught in the middle of it as they stormed the court.As the final buzzer sounded in Utah Valley's 66-61 victory, New Mexico State guard K.C. Ross-Miller threw the basketball at Utah Valley's Holton Hunsaker (who happens to be the son of Utah Valley coach Dick Hunsaker), hitting him in the leg. Ross-Miller was immediately taken aside by his coaches, but New Mexico St. guard D.K. Eldridge and a few of his teammates started going after Utah Valley players just as the home fans were joining them on the court. Fortunately, the brawl was quickly contained as security, coaches and a few of the other players were able to separate their teammates from the fray, while most of the Utah Valley fans showed restraint and did not get involved. There will likely be some punishment for those New Mexico State players involved, most especially Ross-Miller for inciting the brawl. This incident could have been much, much worse, and it just goes to show the potential dangers to fans who storm the court that they probably never think about.H/T LBS.
