A very heated situation popped off after the Mountaineers loss to Texas Tech on Saturday. There is video that shows West Virginia sophomore Wesley Harris getting into an altercation with some Texas Tech fans after the Red Raiders win. Now West Virginia University has released a statement on the issue.
The brief statement read:
“We have been in contact with the Big 12 conference and Texas Tech and are gathering information regarding yesterday’s court storming in Lubbock.”
Video has surfaced and it appears the fan ran into Harris as he was storming the court, then Harris extended his arms into the back of the fan.
Here are two videos that captured the incident from different angles:
