Storming the court after an upset win or a buzzer-beating victory over a rival school is as old as college basketball itself. But no one ever said it was smart or safe to launch hundreds of excited fans down an incline and into an enclosed space that already contains people. Following Duke's upset loss at Virginia and the subsequent court-storming, Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski spoke out about the risks of an altercation between fans and the opposing team getting out of control. Does rushing the court need to stop before an end-of-game celebration turns ugly?
All fun and games?
Duke has endured four court stormings this season, including this one at Maryland. Is the risk to fans and players alike worth these otherwise giddy moments?
