Former KU players, college basketball world react to rivalry game fracas
The wild brawl that brought an ugly end to the Sunflower Showdown at Allen Fieldhouse Tuesday night, of course, drew the attention of the entire college basketball world.
While opinions varied on the fracas, which spewed off the actual court and into the seats behind the baseline, some renowned national analysts called for swift action and suspensions after KU forward Silvio De Sousa and Kansas State big man James Love were at the heart of a confrontation that cleared both benches.
KU head coach Bill Self, who called the incident embarrassing, said after the game he expected to announce punishments on Wednesday. While those haven’t been announced as of the morning, that didn’t stop some national college basketball media members from immediately speculating about what’s to come.
A couple of former Kansas players, Devonte’ Graham and Scot Pollard, also shared via Twitter their thoughts on how the rivalry game concluded.
Here are some of the many social media posts regarding the altercation.
