What was a close game between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech took an ugly turn in the final seconds Saturday night. Following an Oklahoma State turnover, Marcus Smart hustled back on defense and committed a foul before falling into the stands. When Smart got up, he turned around and shoved a fan in the stands with an official standing right behind him.
Smart was immediately issued a technical and walked back to the bench as the ESPNU cameras caught him yelling at the officials and later cursing from the sidelines.
Dusty Hannahs made one of the two technical free throws for the Red Raiders, who held on to win, 65-61.
This is not the first time the All-American guard has lost his temper during a game. In January, he kicked a chair out of frustration against West Virginia, though he later apologized. And earlier this week, he vented his frustration to the media and criticized officials over his reputation for flopping.
The Texas Tech fan has been involved in controversy before, including a time where television cameras caught him taunting Bryan Davis of Texas A&M. Via @catorano:
According to Andy Katz of ESPN, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby will review the incident on Sunday. A suspension is one of the potential outcomes, with Bowlsby expected to discuss the incident with Smart and Oklahoma State head coach Travis Ford.
