What the hell has gotten into college basketball fans lately?
First, there was the well-publicized incident involving Oklahoma State star Marcus Smart and a Texas Tech fan that took place early last month. Then, there was the wild brawl that broke out between a bunch of New Mexico State players and some Utah Valley players and fans last week. And last night, a UC Santa Barbara fan, who appeared to be intoxicated, upped the ante by running onto the court in the middle of a UCSB game against Hawaii and confronting Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold. It was a surreal scene that ended with the fan being escorted out of the stadium as he continued to talk trash to some of the Hawaii players.
"It was a little crazy to have a fan pushing your players around," Arnold said after the game. "I've never seen it. You don't expect it."
You sure don't. Watch the fan run onto the court and confront Arnold in the clip above. Seriously, what the hell is going on with college hoops fans right now?!
