Skirmish breaks out in Colorado State-Air Force game

Saturday January 10th, 2015

A skirmish broke out during Saturday's game between Colorado State and Air Force in Colorado Springs.

Early in the second half, Rams forward J.J. Avila and Falcons guard Zach Kocur got tangled up while battling for a rebound after a missed jump shot.

Kocur and Avila both wound up on the ground, and Avila appeared to put Kocur in a headlock before being punched in the spine by Air Force guard Matt Mooney.

Then other players got involved, and officials and coaches stepped in to end the skirmish. Several technical fouls were assessed and one player was ejected.

Colorado State won the game, 92-87.
