ESPN's Jay Bilas suggests severe consequences for court-storming fans

Feb 26, 2024

Jay Bilas, a former Duke star who is a college basketball analyst for ESPN, blasted fans for court storming after a Blue Devils was injured on Saturday amid an incident with Wake Forest supporters.

Bilas appeared on ESPN’s "First Take" and suggested one idea to clamp down on court-storming.

"The truth is nothing’s going to change now," he said. "We’re going to talk about it. It’s going to go away, and nothing’s going to change. And if they wanted to stop it, they could stop it tomorrow. The administrations will tell you the security experts tell them that it’s not a good idea to try stop the court-storming, because that could cause more problems than it would solve.

"But you don’t have to stop the court storming. One time, all you have to do is, once they’re on the court, don’t let them off. Just say, ‘You’re all detained,’ and give them all citations, or arrest them if you want to. And then court stormings will stop the next day."
