UNLV's Anthony Marshall Shows Restraint After Shove from New Mexico Fan

Sports fans never cease to amaze in their constant effort to infuse themselves upon the game. The latest was a horrible fan who decided to shove a college athlete for, well, we don't know. 

Yahoo! Sports reports UNLV senior guard Anthony Marshall received a push from an unlikely source in Wednesday's New Mexico 65-60 win over the Rebels. 

The story really should be about the close game and the dramatic effort from both squads. Instead, some bro who we assume had too much to drink decided to make it about something else. 

As the report reminds us, the two schools enjoy a lasting rivalry, and Lobos fans were amped on the sidelines of University Arena. 

Still, it should be fairly easy to act like an adult and keep your arms off the players. 

At the 13:35 mark of the second half, Marshall heads towards the fans when he goes after a loose ball. While standing near a rabid pack, one young man decides to push the UNLV player. 

As far as we can tell, there is absolutely no impetus behind the move other than Marshall is playing for the bitter rival. 

Referee Verne Harris steps in to calm the situation and the bro is ejected, but not before throwing his hands up like Rasheed Wallace does when he is called for a technical. 

According to his face, he had no part in anything. In fact, he thinks you should prove he is even at the game.
