As Fox News reports:
A violent brawl broke out between in-state rivals Kansas and Kansas State toward the end of their game Tuesday — a fight seemingly sparked by a late block.
Players from both teams threw punches as onlookers at Allen Fieldhouse looked in amazement following the Jayhawks 81-59 win.

The chaos started when Kansas State guard DaJuan Gordon was blocked and Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa stood over him barking. Players from both benches ran onto the floor as the clock ran out.
Seconds earlier, De Sousa was stripped by Gordon near midcourt and Gordon tried to go in for a layup when his shot was rejected. De Sousa confidently walked over to Gordon and stood over him as he lay on the floor, triggering the benches to clear.
