Kansas, in the midst of a 13-0 first-half run against the Cowboys, brought Allen Fieldhouse to its feet with this crushing dunk from Tarik Black. The noise might have caused some confusion on the Oklahoma State side because Markel Brown tries to push the ball up the court while Travis Ford called a timeout. Brown ended up bumping into a Kansas defender and giving him a little shove with his elbow, and the benches cleared.
The referees and coaches kept everyone contained (for a bit) and play resumed after the timeout. Later in the half, both sides were assessed technical fouls for some pushing and shoving under the basket. After a hard foul, Wayne Selden, Jr. steps over Marcus Smart who, along with some teammates took issue.
