With the Wildcats up 73–68 and seven seconds remaining in the extra session, Kansas State attempted to inbound the ball under their own basket. Wildcats freshman Dai Dai Ames was battling to get free from Friars freshman Garwey Dual in the far corner.
During the inbounds play, the two players became involved in an altercation. After Ames appeared to hit Dual in the face, Dual responded by throwing a punch that resulted in his forearm landing to the side of Ames’ head.
Following the incident, officials ejected both players.
