Both sets of fans rush court after basketball game

Wed, Mar 7

What happens when a buzzer-beater gets waved off in a one-point basketball game? Both teams' fan bases storm the court -- as seen in Vancouver last weekend, when supporters of both St. George's and Kitsilano celebrated after Milan Mitrovic's made shot was deemed to be taken too late.

Then, as Stewart wrote, "the three referees hustled from the gym."
