PENDING MELTDOWN

Utah Valley University fans wasted no time making themselves heard in the WAC.

At the end of Thursday’s UVU-New Mexico State game, the Aggies’ K.C. Ross-Miller threw the ball at UVU’s Holton Hunsaker, just as fans rushed the court. That’s when things got wild, as fans and players milled around and even threw a few punches.

There was plenty of national publicity because, for a half-minute, things were trending toward a riot.

OK, maybe that’s an overstatement. A riot in Utah County?

Not unless they close the BYU Creamery on Friday nights.
