MORE SECURITY AT COLLEGE BASKETBALL GAMES?

Thursday night's game in Santa Barbara, California between UC Santa Barbara and Hawaii is raising the question if more security is needed at college basketball games. During the game, a fan ran down the stands, and confronted Hawaii's head coach after the referees gave him a technical foul. The fan had open access between the stands and basketball court, before security escorted the fan out the building.


A few weeks ago, fans got involved in a fight between New Mexico State and Utah Valley basketball players. Analysts are calling for more security at college basketball games, with stricter rules as other sports. The Bradley Center is gearing up for the first round of the NCAA Tournament on March 20th. Thousands of college basketball fans are expected to attend.


CBS 58 spoke with the President and CEO of the Bradley Center. Steve Costello says the facility already has a plan in place for the tournament. But, the recent events are raising more awareness. Some security measures will include undercover law enforcement officers at the basketball games.
