THIS IS WHY COURT-STORMING IS BAD. THIS IS WHY IT WILL END SOON. At the end of the Utah Valley overtime win over New Mexico State, New Mexico State’s K.C. Ross-Miller threw a ball at a Utah Valley player as fans were starting to storm the court. What insued wasn’t pretty. Fans began shoving the NMSU player and eventually it appears that punches were thrown. This is an embarrassment to college basketball and this SHOULD be the end of the stupid court-stormings. To all of you morons who feel the need to rush the court while players and coaches are trying to shake hands, SCREW YOU! Stay in your seats until they’ve left the court. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. This is what sparked the fight.
