KU Defeats KSU, Brawl Erupts After Game

 

The Kansas Jayhawks won Tuesday night's matchup against Kansas State 81-60, but a fight that erupted after the final whistle is what everyone will be talking about. With Kansas up 22 and dribbling out the clock, the Wildcats' DaJuan Jordan stripped the ball from Silvio De Sousa and headed down the court for a layup. De Sousa followed Jordan and blocked the shot, while sending Jordan to the floor. De Sousa received a technical foul for taunting.

 

Following the technical, K-State's Antonio Gordon and David Sloan went after De Sousa, sparking the brawl that involved players from both sides as well as the benches. At one point, De Sousa picked up a chair before having it grabbed away by an assistant coach. Security and coaches from both teams worked to pull the two teams apart.

 

Seemingly, with the game over due to the fight, both teams headed out to the locker room. However, the game's referees called both teams out to finish the game, which had a tenth of a second remaining. K-State shot their technical fouls, and the game was finally called over.

 

As of now, no suspensions or punishments have been announced for either side. KU head coach and athletic director Jeff Long said they would review the incident, with Self adding the incident was an embarrassment to the program. K-State head coach Bruce Weber said he didn't see the initial incident, as he was shaking hands with opposing coaches and players at the time.
