Utah Valley vs. New Mexico State was supposed to be a showdown between the top two teams in the Western Athletic Conference. In the end, though, it will be remembered for a lot more than Utah Valley's 66-61 win over the Aggies of New Mexico State.

Some folks are against court-stormings because fans and losing players can sometimes be a dangerous mix. Tonight, those people add another arrow to their quiver. From NBC Sports:

NMSU’s K.C. Ross-Miller threw a ball at Holton Hunsaker before fans stormed the court, which sparked a scrum that included athletes on both teams as well as fans that were on the floor.

Here's video of the incident:


Probably not the best way for the nation to be introduced to WAC basketball.

That's hardly a brawl.  It might be a skirmish or a scuffle ... perhaps even a slap fight or fisticuffs.  But definitely not a brawl. 

Yeti's have feelings too.

Nah, if he was using a thesaurus, I'm sure he would have used melee or donnybrook, maybe even kerfuffle.

Not looking to start a fight or anything, but I've never even heard of Utah Valley before this.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

Raise your hand if you had any idea Utah Valley was a school....let alone, in the WAC....

Okay, good, just checking.

The Utah Valley WOLVERINES? I was automatically rooting for New Mexico State in that fight, does that make me a bad person?...

Anyone else surprised to see that Macklemore is a Utah Valley student who gets into it with other teams' players? (:38)
