No one likes to lose, and the wife of the Wichita State men's basketball coach is no different.
Lynn Marshall, whose husband Gregg Marshall had just seen his team lose to Kentucky 65-62 on Sunday, was asked to leave the arena's lower bowl after she began cursing loudly when the game ended.
A police officer was eventually called and followed Lynn Marshall up the steps. She later was taken back to the playing level on an elevator so she could attend her husband’s news conference.
NCAA spokesman David Worlock says it is standard procedure for the wife of a coach to be escorted to the press conference but it is usually done by school officials.
Lynn Marshall remained in the stands about 10 minutes after the final buzzer. She at first consoled fans and family members of the team’s players. But then she started shouting loudly about the calls made during the game. Eventually, the people around coaxed her to leave and the police officer followed.
Team spokesman Bryan Holmgren said the team was unaware of the situation and could not comment.
