Brock Fritz Headshot

The handshake line turned ugly after Monday’s NCAA men's basketball game between Prairie View A&M and Jackson State.

Prairie View A&M notched a 70-61 win to remain atop the Southwestern Athletic Conference. However, emotions from a technical foul on Jackson State’s Jayveous McKinnis with 26 seconds remaining appeared to carry over after the game, which aired on ESPNU.
