Arizona basketball players criticized for post-game antics after NCAA Tournament win over TCU

The Arizona basketball team escaped Sunday night with an 85-80 overtime win over TCU in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

However, some were not happy with the way the Wildcats players handled the team’s post-game celebrations.

One site criticized the players for their post-game antics after the win.

Frogs O’ War, an SB Nation TCU site, tweeted a post-game video showing Arizona players waving goodbye and taunting TCU fans in the aftermath of the game.

It tweeted this post with the video: “Instead of celebrating with their team and bench, Wildcat players immediately ran to the TCU fanbase, waving and kissing. One team walked away with a W, but the other walked away with dignity .”

It also tweeted that “Kerr Kriisa just mocked the TCU Alma Mater with a hand sign from the Horned Frog. He finished with 3 points to 1-10 shooting and a few turnovers. Disgusting display of sportsmanship.”

People had mixed thoughts about the Arizona players’ actions after the game:

Arizona coach Tommy Lloyd was featured in a different kind of video after the game when CBS Sports caught him kicking Eddie Lampkin Jr. of TCU tried to console.

The #1 ranked Wildcats will then face #5 Houston in the Sweet 16 on Thursday.
