Massive brawl breaks out at end of Kansas-Kansas State game

Silvio De Sousa of the Kansas Jayhawks picks up a chair during a brawl as the game against the Kansas State Wildcats ends at Allen Fieldhouse on January 21, 2020 in Lawrence, Kansas.

The end of No. 3 Kansas’ 81-60 win against Kansas State did not go well on Tuesday night at Allen Fieldhouse.

Instead, the blowout rivalry win ended in an all-out brawl.

As Kansas started dribbling out the clock while holding a massive lead in the final seconds, Kansas State’s DaJuan Gordon stole the ball and started dribbling down the court in an effort to secure one last layup.

Kansas’ Silvio De Souda, however, sprinted behind Gordon and came up with a massive block as he attempted the layup, sending Gordon down into the baseline.

Almost instantly, both teams swarmed the scene on the baseline, which sparked the wild brawl that spilled down into the crowd and media section underneath the basket. Several punches were thrown in the incident, and De Sousa even picked up a chair at one point.

It took several arena staff, coaches, police officers and even cheer leaders to break up the fight.

After things had settled, both teams were called back out from the locker rooms and one-tenth of a second was added back onto the clock. Kansas State hit one free throw from a technical foul out of the incident before the game was officially over.

David Sloan led the Wildcats with 17 points, shooting 7-of-11 from the field. Xavier Sneed finished with 16 points, and Makol Mawien added 11. They were the only three to score in double figures for Kansas State.

Christian Braun led the Jayhawks with 20 points off the bench in the win, shooting 6-of-10 from behind the arc. Devon Dotson added 18 points, and Udoka Azubuike finished with a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds. Kansas has now won six of its last seven.
