K-State Police want to know who hip-checked a KU basketball player last night
The Kansas State basketball team whipped cross-state rivals Kansas on Monday night before a nationally televised audience on ESPN, but few seem to be talking about the athletes’ play on the court.
Instead, attention Tuesday seemed to mostly turn toward the antics of the Wildcats’ faithful at Bramlage Coliseum, who rushed the court to celebrate the victory and treat the feat against an overrated opponent like a national championship.
KSU officials, instead of lauding their team’s victory, have issued apologies to KU athletics personnel for the harsh sendoff the fans offered to the Jayhawks.
Law enforcement is getting involved, too.
KU head coach Bill Self was unhappy that some fans went after a few of his players before they could leave the court.
University police, it turns out, aren’t pleased either. They want the public’s help in identifying this person (pictured) who plowed into KU junior forward Jamari Traylor after the final buzzer sounded. It looked like this overzealous goof went out of his way to get a shot in on Traylor before heading off to midcourt.
K-State police are asking anyone with information to call 785-832-6412 or send them a tip online.
