Washington's Venoy Overton and Arizona State's James Harden may have disagreed on the court (outlined in the post below). But they certainly had their stories straight after the game.
HARDEN: "This was a great competitive game. Washington's a great team. We're competitive as well. So it was a great game; guys were just playing hard. I don't know what happened, but guys were just playing hard."
OVERTON: "Just two competitive teams going at each other, basically. A little pushing and shoving. Both teams were just trying to let each other know that they weren't backing down from each other."
However, Overton was willing to give a little more information on how the incident developed: "He came and bumped me, I'm falling down and I grabbed to try to keep myself up and that's when Glasser kind of came over the top of me, and the teammates that I got, they're not gonna just let one player be pushed around and they all came to my help. That's how it is when you're a team."
Never miss a local story.
And afterward, Overton said, there were no hard feelings: "They just said way to fight, good game. Whatever happens on the court stays on the court most of the time."
