A video of Arizona basketball player Benn Mathurin is making the rounds on Twitter.

The Wildcats beat TCU in overtime Sunday night in the second round after one of the worst no-calls in the history of sports, but people are noticing Mathurin for a very different reason. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

In a video catching a lot of people’s attention, it looks like the college basketball star might have touched a TCU cheerleader.

Give it a watch below, and decide for yourself what you think happened.

To me, it looked like Mathurin just barely clipped her uniform in the chest region. I mean, it looks like he might have just barely grazed up against her, and while people might be upset, I think it’s pretty clear if contact was made, it was an accident.

In the video, Mathurin never even looked at the cheerleader. It looked like he was just throwing his arms out to give anyone a high five who wanted one.

As far as I can tell, if there was contact, it was almost certainly 100% accidental and not malicious at all. Again, he never even looked at her.

Perhaps, he didn’t know she was there or thought there were some fans in the area. You’d have to be the dumbest person alive to purposely touch a cheerleader in a setting that is completely covered with video cameras.

Let us know in the comments what you think happened!
