Wichita State Coach’s Wife Escorted From Arena After Loss To Kentucky


UPDATE (9:30 p.m. ET): More details regarding Lynn Marshall’s behavior have surfaced.

Kentucky Sports Radio’s Drew Franklin elaborated on some of the vulgarities and unpleasantries the Wichita State coach’s wife vocalized throughout the course of Sunday’s NCAA Tournament loss to Kentucky in Indianapolis.

“She told Malik Monk to get in the weight room, told Isaiah Briscoe to buy some bigger shorts, told (John) Calipari to ‘shut the f–k up’, told Roger Ayers he is garbage and other classy things she yelled between F-bombs,” Franklin said on KSR.

A video of Lynn Marshall’s behavior during the game also began to circulate on social media.

ORIGINAL STORY: Wichita State nearly pulled off the second-round NCAA Tournament upset over No. 2 seed Kentucky, but the Wildcats ultimately held on for a 65-62 victory.

The loss ended the Shockers’ tournament run, which apparently didn’t sit well with Lynn Marshall, wife of Wichita State coach Gregg Marshall. According to The Associated Press, Lynn Marshall was removed from the Bankers Life Fieldhouse’s lower bowl by law enforcement after she began loudly cursing following the Shockers’ loss.

According to the report, security asked Lynn Marshall to leave the area by security after her vulgar outburst but needed to be assisted by a police officer after she failed to do so. She later was taken via elevator alongside police to attend her husband’s press conference. While a coach’s wife typically is escorted to attend the postgame press conference, it is usually done so with a school official.

The primary reason for Lynn Marshall’s expletive-laden outpouring was her dissatisfaction with the officiating, according to The AP.

Poor officiating has been a common theme in the early rounds of the NCAA Tournament, as Seton Hall and Northwestern both fell victim to questionable calls.
