Miss. State fans throw ice, bottles on court

BY foxsports • February 17, 2010

Cups filled with ice and plastic water bottles were thrown onto the court near the end of No. 2 Kentucky's 81-75 overtime victory over Mississippi State on Tuesday night.

The incident resembled a similar outburst on Feb. 3, when West Virginia fans threw objects on the court in a game against Pittsburgh.

The cups and bottles landed on both ends of the court, coming close to Kentucky guard John Wall and almost hitting official Mike Kitts.

The objects appeared to come from student sections in the record crowd of 10,788.

Kentucky coach John Calipari downplayed it, saying it was the action of no more than ``15 fans'' among thousands. Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury wasn't asked about the thrown objects in his postgame news conference.
