UCSB Student Arrested After Rushing Onto Court

ESPN reports that a "UC Santa Barbara fan ran out on the court Thursday night during a stoppage in play
and angrily confronted the Hawaii coaching staff, the third time in a month a college basketball fan has
come into violent contact with a player or coach."
"The man, who wore a royal blue UC Santa Barbara Class of 2014 T-Shirt, was later arrested after being
quickly ushered off the court during the Gauchos' 86-77 victory, which was aired on ESPNU."
"Hawaii coach Gib Arnold said it was something unlike he'd ever seen in his 22 years as a coach 'and a lot of years of playing... It was a little crazy to have a
fan pushing your players around. I've never seen it. You don't expect it,' Arnold said in a postgame TV interview."
"UC Santa Barbara spokesman Bill Mahoney said the man, who the school believed was a student, was arrested by campus police. Mahoney, who did not
identify the fan, said he could face discipline and could be expelled if he is a student."
