Arizona basketball coach Sean Miller thinks that students storming the court will eventually lead to one his players punching a fan.
Miller spoke with the media following his team’s shocking loss to Colorado after students rushed the court. (RELATED: Wisconsin Freshman Throws Down Insane Windmill Dunk)
“An Arizona player is going to punch a fan and they’re going to punch the fan out of self-defense. And when it happens, only when it happens, will everybody take a deep breath and say we have to do something to protect both teams so that when the game ends we have a deep breath to leave the court,” he told the media.
Controversy surrounding students storming the court is not a new topic. In 2011, Ohio State player Jared Sullener claimed a Wisconsin fan spit in his face, although that claim could never be verified.
