After instigating a brawl that marred a fantastic WAC contest between New Mexico State and Utah Valley on Thursday, Aggies junior guard K.C. Ross-Miller has been suspended indefinitely, according to ESPN.com.
Following Utah Valley’s 66-61 overtime victory, chaos ensued. While the players were in the midst of a brawl, fans rushed the court to celebrate the Wolverines’ big win, exacerbating the situation.
Per Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo Sports, the brawl was initially triggered by Ross-Miller throwing the ball at Utah Valley’s Holton Hunsaker immediately after the game:
“Utah Valley SID: Brawl began when NMSU’s KC Ross Miller threw ball at Holton Hunsaker. NMSU players were fighting w/fans who rushed court. — Jeff Eisenberg (@JeffEisenberg) February 28, 2014”
While it is unclear what prompted Ross-Miller to react in that manner, New Mexico State head coach Marvin Menzies deemed his actions unacceptable, according to ESPN.com.
