The second-round game between No. 9 seed Kansas State and No. 8 seed Kentucky got off to one of the weirdest starts in NCAA tournament history.
Kansas State walk-on Brian Rohleder, who has averaged only 1.8 minutes per game this season, was assessed a technical foul after dunking during warm-ups.
Here's why Rohleder was given a technical foul:
Official explanation on technical. Rule says you can't dunk once pregame clock hits 20:00. Walk-on Brian Rohleder threw one down at 19:58— Chris Fickett (@ChrisFickett) March 22, 2014
Kentucky's Andrew Harrison missed the first free throw but made the second, which gave Kentucky a 1-0 lead before any time came off the clock.
