Police and security stepped in to break both teams up. Prairie View won the game 70-61.

Jackson State University released a statement about the fight:

“The conduct of a few of our student-athletes at the conclusion of last night’s game at Prairie View A&M is unacceptable and not reflective of who we are.

There is no place for this conduct in college athletics or here at Jackson State.”
