Before last weekend, SMU men’s basketball coach Larry Brown said he had been a part of four “court-stormings,” which isn’t an official statistic but is something we see play out this time of year. None of Brown’s previous experiences was positive.
There was the fight he was in during his undergrad days playing at North Carolina. There were the two games he coached at UCLA and Kansas, respectively, where he watched his opponent’s fans storm the court after Brown’s team lost. Finally, there was the Ron Artest fight in Detroit in 2003.
Compared to that, watching SMU’s fans hit the court after the Mustangs soundly defeated Cincinnati last Saturday was unexpected bliss.
