Zapruder Analysis: WAC College Basketball Post-Game Fight

Categories: Game Time, Sports

0:17 -- There's the throw from Ross-Miller, and he brings the heat. Ninety-five miles per hour right at below Hunsaker's waistline. The two engage in some verbal barbs and begin to approach one another, while the coaches for both teams (perhaps fearing their entire rosters being suspended) jump in to break things up.

0:24 -- A bunch of students are rushing the floor while tempers are flaring. The students are essentially human kerosene on a vitriol fire.

0:37 -- As best I can tell, there are two distinct fighting incidents that can be deciphered in the mass of humanity. The first is one of the New Mexico State players duking it out with a UVU student in a dark green T-shirt. They are separated by what appears to be a diminutive UVU fanboy dressed head to toe in fluorescent green, as if Jesse Pinkman went as a green highlighter for Halloween, he would be this guy. (He's one to watch toward the end as well.) Also, there was....

0:40 -- to the far right of the screen, it appears to be number 25, Renaldo Dixon from the Aggies, firing a total sucker punch on someone and scurrying away. Deadspin even managed to catch it in animated GIF form. That will not end well for Dixon, who apparently forgot we live in an age where everyone can pretty much see everything you do everywhere except the pisser.

0:44 -- Fake Pinkman is doing work! There are four types of people trying to quell the riot -- police, coaches, security personnel and Fake Pinkman. Seriously, he's looking for serious Good Samaritan dap, or trying to compile a video résumé so that one day he can be a real security guard.

If this were a game between two schools everyone knew existed, it would be leading SportsCenter and we would be subject to contrived debates for the next two days on the danger of storming the court. But alas, most of us are just now finding out that there's such thing as "Utah Valley University," which sounds like a school that "Minnesota State" would have played on the sitcom Coach.
