SEC fines Arkansas for storming the court following win over Duke
Arkansas has been fined by the SEC after fans stormed the court following the Razorbacks’ win over a top-10 Duke team.
The SEC considers Wednesday night to be a first offense under the league’s revised access to competition area policy. A first offense comes with a $100,000 fine for Arkansas. If it happens again, the program will be fined $250,000 for the second offense and $500,000 for the third time and subsequent offenses.
Fans at Bud Walton Area wasted no time celebrating when the clock hit 0:00 on Arkansas’ 80-75 upset win over No. 7 Duke.
