Cougar fans rush the court after consecutive made free-throws

Midway during the first half, exuberant WSU fans rushed the court after guard Klay Thompson made two consecutive free-throws to pull within four points of the visiting Washington Huskies.

Celebrating wildly, it took 45 minutes for stadium officials to clear the court, get fans back in the stands and resume play.

Early in the second half, Cougar fans poured out onto the court again after a jump ball gave possession back to WSU. Chants could be heard of “It’s our arrow…It’s our arrow.”

Before the upset was secure, there was a mistaken rush of the court by Cougar fans after one student, who was playing Birds on his iPhone, got past a hard level and rushed the court and caused other fans to follow him.

    The recent storming of the field from Minnesota after they beat Iowa last weekend gas brought this issue up at Big Ten schools as well. Some media are saying it’s poor form by the Gophers to rush the field while others are saying it’s an important rivalry win for a rebuilding program. There’s been a good debate at TC Huddle. I found your article searching for more opinions on the issue.

    Thought you might want to check it out. It’s enjoyable if nothing else: http://www.tchuddle.com/2011/10/the-importance-of-the-iowa-win/
