Chaos ensues following Kansas State’s upset of rival Kansas
The final horn had barely sounded when Kansas State fans began pouring onto the floor following their team’s 70-63 upset of No. 8 Kansas. It was quite the spectacle, but lost in the mass of humanity was Jayhawks coach Bill Self, who was overrun by Wildcat fans as he walked over to congratulate KSU coach Bruce Weber.

Self wasn’t the only one to be run over following Monday night’s game. A KSU fan went out of his way to shoulder check forward Jamari Traylor as he was walking off the court.

It appears that a KU staffer took matters into his own hands, putting a fan who looked to be taunting players in a headlock.
Needless to say, Self was none to pleased about what happened following the game.

Weber told reporters afterwards that he apologized to Self and his staff.
