From The Last Angry Fan:

With a little over 8:30 minutes left in the second half of Wednesday night’s Big 12 matchup between Baylor and Oklahoma, and the Bears trailing by 10, a precocious tyke clad in Baylor gear wandered on the court during play, causing the refs to halt the game momentarily while the kid’s dad corralled him back to his seat (on second thought, looks like an arena staffer snagged the kid). Luckily he didn’t find himself smack dab in the middle of the action because he could have been hurt, or worse, soiled his diaper during a Baylor fast break.

Great parenting there, dad whoever was supposed to be watching the kid.

Turns out the kid was part of a dunk contest at halftime. Apparently he wanted to show off his mad hops to the television viewing audience who might have missed his halftime performance. Either that or he was frustrated with the way Baylor was running their half-court offense and decided he’d show them how they do it on the preschool basketball court.

The wee lad must have had some effect on the Baylor squad because they came back from a 16-point 2nd half deficit to nearly topple Oklahoma, but the Sooners prevailed 74-71.

Little kid runs onto court during Baylor vs Oklahoma basketball game (Video)

Wednesday night's NCAA basketball game in Waco, Texas between Baylor and Oklahoma was briefly interrupted in the second half when a little kid ran onto the court.

Fortunately, the kid was removed from...

Video: Toddler rushes the court during Baylor/Oklahoma

Storming the court is out of control. I blame all the students who continue to rush the court when it isn’t necessary for what happened with a toddler in midst of the Baylor/Oklahoma game Wednesday night. This wasn’t an end of the game situation, as there was still over 8 minutes remaining with the Bears trailing by 10 at home to the Sooners. Suddenly, a young child ran onto...

Little kid storms court during Oklahoma vs. Baylor game (Video)

That seems to be the opinion of the Aggies’ coach, anyway.  Sumlin said it’s easy to kick a guy off the team...
