Fan Walks onto Court, Argues with Ref during Marquette-Providence Game

It all started with Providence player Jeff Xavier was hit in the eye by Joseph Fulce and was in obvious pain. No foul was called on the play and apparently that didn’t sit well with Xavier’s brother, Jonathan, who walked on to the court unimpeded to talk over the non-call with a ref. He was quickly escorted off of the court by security.

“What you’re hopeful when you see something like that is the players don’t get hurt,” said Providence coach Keno Davis. “Any time any fan or anyone takes the court, that’s not where they’re supposed to be. Whether it’s a relative or not, we’ve got to make sure we keep the fans off the court.”

By the way, 19th ranked Marquette easily defeated the Friars 91-82.
