NC State beats Duke, storms floor, knocks over kid in wheelchair?

Jan 12, 2013, 3:36 PM EDT


NC State picked up a big win over No. 1 Duke today, handing the short-handed Blue Devils their first loss of the season and, in the process, picking up a win that could end up paying massive dividends in March. You don’t think a win over a top five team will look good on a resume? And you don’t think that the Wolfpack wanted to start on the inside track for the ACC title race?

No matter how you slice it, this was a massive win for the Wolfpack even if Ryan Kelly was sidelined.

That’s why NC State fans stormed the floor.

It was a pretty impressive effort, as you can see based on this video from Ryan Fagan, who was sitting courtside:

What you don’t see in that video? A touching moment turning into a potentially scary one.

Watching on TV, you could see one NC State fan pushing a friend in a wheelchair as he led the charge onto the floor. But once they reached the center of the court, it looks like the kid in the wheel chair gets knocked over:

Luckily, CJ Leslie was there to save the day:

    Why would the guy push him onto the court?

    Wow…that is nuts, but so easy to understand when we get carried away by the emotion of the moment. Fortunately, he was uninjured and has a story to tell.

    I just hope this does not encourage others to do the same.
