Kansas State fans couldn't storm the court after upsetting No. 1 Oklahoma, so players stormed the crowd

The Kansas State Wildcats upset No. 1 Oklahoma 80-69! Wildcats fans are ecstatic, but their postgame celebration on the court isn't a reflection of that—with good reason.

The court featured more security guards than there were fans. This is because K-State fans have learned their lesson from last year's court-storming debacle, which featured a fan pinning Bill Self up against the scorers table. The joy of winning that game quickly shifted towards safety for the players and coaches.

The script took the complete opposite turn against the Sooners. Rather than the fans storming the court to celebrate with the players, it's the players that made their way up to the stands to celebrate with the raucous K-State crowd.
