Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford joined the show to talk about when Marcus Smart shoved a Texas Tech fan last Saturday.
Ford said that he didn’t know what happened with Smart until after the game. Ford said that the official came over and said there was a technical for pushing “a guy.” Ford assumed it was a player and a little bit later heard it was a fan.
Ford said if you watch the video, there’s no question that Smart thought he heard something very inflammatory, like a racial slur. Because Ford said that Smart was fine when he first fell. But Ford said he doesn’t know exactly what was said.
But Ford said he thinks Smart is doing well since the incident. “It was a heat of the moment thing that he’s learned from,” Ford said.
