MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Kansas State athletic director John Currie has promised to review the school's security procedures after an upset of eighth-ranked Kansas on Monday night turned into a chaotic scene as students and fans rushed the court.

Currie apologized in a statement to Kansas counterpart Sheahon Zenger, coach Bill Self and the rest of the Jayhawks on Tuesday morning.

Self needed help from Kansas State coach Bruce Weber just to exit the floor. In another instance, Kansas assistant Kurtis Townsend had to yank away a Kansas State fan who was taunting several of his players. Jayhawks forward Jamari Traylor was hip-checked by one student now being sought by campus police, which posted a picture of the offender on Twitter.

Throughout the game, students engaged in profane chants directed at their rival.
