Kansas cruised past Kansas State, winning 81-60. In the final seconds of the game, a brawl started after De Sousa blocked a shot and stood over a Kansas State player. It resulted in De Sousa raising a chair about to swing it before someone grabbed it out of his hands. It leaked into the seats. Here is a clip of the fight.
