Lobo basketball fans are returning to The Pit Tuesday night to see the team take on Utah State. This, just a few days after a UNM fan threw a cup at another team's player.
On Saturday, a fan threw a cup of liquid at a San Diego State basketball player during the game. Now, UNM is warning fans that this behavior will not be tolerated.
On Monday, KOB Eyewitness News 4 got a statement from Mike Haggerty, the assistant athletic director for events. Haggerty wrote, in part: "The vast majority of Lobo fans are terrific and do things the right way, and we greatly appreciate them. However, we would also like to remind fans that this type of behavior will not be tolerated."
UNM athletic officials told us they think they have the person responsible for the incident. The university received a lot of help from fans in the stands who witnessed the act.
Fans can report any misconduct during games by sending a text message to 78247.
