Clemente on Reed in 08? Or 09, can't remember. I don't know if that even counts.

In the head? Clemente on Reed at the free throw line. Also, relatively recent, Aaron Miles comes to mind.

Let me clarify.......I mean a scenario like the recent Baylor Women's game when that player on the court came after the other player with her fist. In other words, a fist brawl on the court that had to be broke up by the refs and player(s) ejected.

I saw on TV old footage of a fist fight during a KU game, I think the other players were Missouri. Honest to goodness punches being thrown in the face, a real courtside street brawl during a game. I think that was a 70s game. Maybe also some during OU game(s) in the 80s, as those Billy Tubbs KU games were intense? Somebody out there has the scoop!

Kansas' Donnie Von Moore got into a fight with a Missouri player, Jim Kennedy in the 70's.

From my view they disappeared into one of the bleacher exits while fighting.

web page

"More than a few games have ended in fisticuffs. In Columbia in 1961, players from both teams fought on the court, surrounded by more than 100 fans.

In Lawrence in 1977, Missouri lost all-conference forward Jim Kennedy and Kansas lost back-up center Donnie Von Moore when they threw punches and started a bench-clearing brawl."

I remember in 1996-1997 Derrick Grimm (MU) put a hard foul at mid court in AFH on Raef LaFrentz and as Raef was falling to the floor Grimm put a hard cross face on Raef with his fore arm. Raef got up like he was going to go after Grimm and Jason Sutherland quickly game to Grimm's aid followed by Jarrod Haase who got up in Sutherland's face. Refs quickly intervened and settled the players down, but for as split second I hoped (I mean thought) the benches were going to clear.

Keep in mind that Miles' black eye from the shot to the eye was inexplicably called a jump ball, alternate possession to Tx Tech, and 3 pointer which won the game.

Yea, there are very few calls that have angered me more. The guy gets absolutely mugged, ends up with a black eye, and what does he get in return? Ttech gets the ball and wins the game. Absolute bullsh*t. Anyone have that picture?

I was just going to say they called it a travel not a jump ball. We had a fan in our house that met its demise that night.

I had a peanut butter jar bite the dust during the KU-UCLA game in '07, I injured a table during this year's OSU game, and my favorite KU hate has taken rebeated beatings during games, not sure if anything was broken that night though, other than Miles' face.

I heard he was just trying to warn the others at the bar about the dangers of alcoholism and was offering his services as a DD. The other patrons did not react well to his good-natured intentions and thus the fight ensued.

Thanks everybody for answering my question. "And brother, they are really slugging in there." I guess games were more wide open in 1961. I liked the part when the players were still brawling and the band started playing the national anthem. Forgot how basketball players looked like they were playing in their underwear. What a trip. Those were the days.......

My bad on the jump ball vs travel for Miles.

I think the call that upsets me the most is any jump ball or travel call when the coach of the "fouling" team is screaming for his players TO FOUL, and the ref calls it something else.

Didn't Ostertag get socked in the face by one of Washburn's players back in the day?

And I remember an exhibition game withsome type of semipro California team where the guy got kicked out for laying out Chenowith with an elbow to the jaw. If I remember correctly he was booted off the team for that too.

YES! I was at the Ostertag game. He ran by Clarence Tyson and intentionally elbowed him in the back of the head. Tyson then turned and responded with a right to the back of Ostertag's head.

Manning might have thrown punches and his poop might in fact stink, but he didn't throw one in that game. I remember it well.

Hey. If you want to play in this league, you have to learn to take a punch or an elbow to the grill without shuffling your feet.

That '61 game in Columbia might have been the closest to mob violence I ever saw on a basketball court. KU's inside players (6'10" forward Wayne Hightower and 6'6" center Bill Bridges) were blatantly grabbed and held every time they got the ball. Bridges at 245# wasn't bothered much, but Hightower at 215# had his lowest point total of the year.

On the play that precipitated the melee, Hightower had a clear lane for a dunk when two MU players grabbed him - one on each arm - and held on for a good 2 or 3 seconds while Wayne stared at the official on the base line. Finally, he jerked one arm free and his roundhouse forearm to the side of the head decked the other player.

Not only the benches but several rows of spectators charged onto the floor. I don't remember the sobriquet 'antlers' in those days, but the same retrograde mentality. Bridges calmly met that phalanx and literally started tossing them back into the stands one at a time. At least two of them landed a couple of rows up.

By the time officials and ushers (security?) got on the scene, the KU team was on the free throw circle, all facing outward, while Bridges patrolled the perimeter. Incredibly, only Hightower was ejected.

I'd have to look it up to be sure. Dick Harp was not the greatest at inspiring his teams through adversity . . . marvelous X&O coach.

OK -- the shameful result was 79-76, tigers.

There was a tie for Big 8 that year, and since conference only got one NCAA entry, a playoff for that (KU-KSU in Ahearn). Similar front-court tactics until 3rd qtr when Bridges got fed up with over-the-back non-calls and began to "clear the lane" by grabbing a rebound and "sweeping" opponents away with the ball as his broom -- no side-to-side or elbows, just took the ball in a circle, to knee level and over the head twice, then passed the ball down court while Wildcats got back to their feet. That team lost to "Big-O" and Cincy in Regional Final.
