Kentucky's dramatic 81-75 overtime victory over Mississippi State last night was marred by an ugly incident before the final buzzer in which fans threw water bottles onto the court.
Official Mike Kitt and Wildcat freshman John Wall were almost hit with the projectiles, and the game was delayed while the mess was cleaned up.
The moronic behavior came after a great game -- one that featured a shorthanded Bulldogs team hanging tough with second-ranked Kentucky before running out of steam in overtime.
Wildcats' DeMarcus Cousins, who was subjected to all sorts of nasty phone calls and text messages after his cell phone number got out, responded with 19 points and 14 rebounds.
You'll recall that a Feb. 3 game between West Virginia and Pittsburgh was sullied by coin-throwing.
I have no idea what compels fans to throw things at players, but it's got to stop.
