Security at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis reportedly had to talk to Lynn Marshallthe wife of Wichita State Shockers head coach Gregg Marshallabout her behavior during Sunday's game against the Kentucky Wildcats.

According to WTVQ's Kennedy Hardman, security paid Marshall three visits over the course of the Shockers' 65-62 loss:

Hardman also reported arena security was "trying to kick out" Marshall but decided it was best to be "delicate" since it was dealing with the head coach's wife. Although minutes after the final buzzer sounded, she was reportedly escorted away from the lower bowl due to shouting expletives, according to the Associated Press.

Marshall's passion for the Shockers has been well-documented, as the Wichita Eagle's Travis Heying noted during Wichita State's 64-58 win over the Dayton Flyers on Friday at the NCAA tournament:

Sunday's game ended in more disappointing fashion for the Shockers, whose season is now over following a tight loss to the South Region's No. 2 seed.

Kentucky, meanwhile, is slated to meet the No. 3-seed UCLA Bruins or No. 6-seed Cincinnati Bearcats in the Sweet 16.
