March Madness: Fan Brawl Breaks Out in Final Minutes of Title Game, And the Madness Has Officially Begun (Video)

This story puts a whole new spin on March Madness. At the NEC Tournament title game between Bryant and Wagner in Smithfield, Rhode Island on Tuesday night, a fan brawl broke out in the stands.

With 4:37 to go and Bryant leading 68-32, the brouhaha went down in the student section behind the Wagner bench, pausing gameplay for almost half an hour.

The biggest losers of this match-up were the fans who were kicked out of the Chace Atlantic Center, obviously. The winners? Bryant, which won 70-43, pushing it the farthest the team has ever made it in the NCAA Tournament. As for Wagner, well, you need some new fans.
