Some chippy play had far-reaching consequences for the women’s basketball teams of Utah State and University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
The teams fought on the court during the third quarter of Saturday’s game in Las Vegas. What started as pushing and shoving between UNLV’s Katie Powell and Utah State’s Antonia Robinson escalated into a bench-clearing brawl.
The Mountain West Network’s Tyler Bischoff shared video of the incident.
The referee ejected eight players — four from each team but not Powell or Robinson — because they left the bench during a fracas, which is a violation of NCAA rules.
UNLV eventually edged Utah State 55-53 in overtime.
