The NCAA Tournament is underway and already things have gotten ugly, only this time it was between two New Orleans teammates with one appearing to choke the other during an altercation.

The incident occurred late in the second half of the First Four matchup, with Mount St. Mary's leading New Orleans. Travin Thibodeaux appeared to be upset at Christavious Gill for not passing the ball soon enough, leading to a three-second violation.

Thibodeaux confronted Gill on the way towards the bench during the ensuing timeout. When Gill tried to push Thibodeaux away, the 6-foot-5 Thibodeaux appeared to put both of his hands around the neck of Gill before others quickly intervened.

We never get a good angle of the altercation, but when the video is slowed down, it does appear that Thibodeaux's hands are around the neck of Gill momentarily.

Mount St. Mary's went on to win the game 67-66.
