MANHATTAN, Kan. (February 25, 2015) — Kansas State is getting ahead of the storm.
Wildcats athletic director John Currie promises to revisit the school’s security procedures after an upset of eighth-ranked Kansas on Monday night resulted in fans storming the court.
Jayhawks coach Bill Self was crushed against a press table, and Kansas forward, Jamari Traylor was body-checked by another fan. Assistant coach Kurtis Townsend had to peel away still more fans shouting profanities and making obscene gestures at his players.
Currie apologized in a lengthy statement to Kansas counterpart Sheahon Zenger, Self and his team. Kansas State intends to review video of the incident along with law enforcement personnel to identify fans who became unruly.
