The wild scene forced Nevada players and staff members into Utah State’s tunnel where things got heated. Nevada players and staff were not happy that fans had been allowed to touch them as they stormed the court.
An upset Jordan Caroline can be seen being held back after smashing glass on a fire extinguisher enclosure. Staff members were then seen screaming at police officers for allowing Nevada’s players to be touched by fans after the game.

There has to be more than their players being touched. Sure they lost the game and were already upset about that, but this is an all-time overreaction if the players were simply touched. Let’s hope there is more to the story.
