They should put a barrier up and let 'em go at it like hockey. They get paid enough, maybe I'd start watching the NBA again.

Will not mention the names of the schools. All incidents took place at opposing schools, except one. The life of playing ball on the south side in the 60s....and now!
1) A teammate, a cheerleader, a kid on the football team and I were leaving after one quarter of watching the frosh-soph game after our varsity game. In the parking lot we were getting harrassed, then they started coming after us with ice balls. Somehow,  we made it to the car. The assault continued. One guy put his fist through the driver's window (the teammate was driving). We were able to floor it out of there. Flagged down a patrol car. He drove us back to the school and asked us from across the street, if we could recognize anyone. HA!!!!!!!!!!! Lucky to get out of there.
2) At a center court jump ball, a little shoving and pushing got started. Our first team all-city player was involved. Then, as if it was rehearsed, the home fans from the opponent's team charged the court. Mayhem
ensued. The cops had to be called in. Unbelievably, the game was played after that....with the fans in the stands!!
3) After a playoff game, in which we scored a major upset, a fan bus, in the parking lot getting ready to leave for our school, was attacked. They were pounding on the bus and started to rock the damn thing. Somehow, the driver was able to gain control and get out of there.
4) After a game, outside the opponent's school, a few of our guys were crossing the street, then, like the clay people from Flash Gordon, the attack was on. Yep, another police situation.
5) An almost riot at the '62 state runner up. Another pushing/shoving incident with our first team all-city guy. No fans leaving the bleachers, but both benches cleared. As I was about to join the fray, something was holding me back. I looked to see, and it was our football coach!! He told me to get my ass back to the bench. I saw him about 2-3 years ago, for the first time since high school, and I reminded him about it and thanked him for saving my hide!! That same team won state the following year.
6) At our school, the locker room had a very small vestibule between doors from the hallway and another set of doors to the locker room itself. Both teams shared locker rooms in those days. After a game (with Dick Butkus' alma mater), one of our guys found himself in that small vestibule with one of their guys. Our guy said nice game and their guy just pounded the crap out of him (sucker punches). No one knew it happened until he came into the locker room bleeding.
7) After a game, we were getting dressed. Our lockers were by the showers. We had some kids on our team of a different faith of the kids on the home team. The home team kids started what they thought was
cute and started goose stepping. Right as the fists were about to fly, our coach ( a Korean war veteran pilot ) came in the locker room and kicked their guys out. Would have been a near naked brawl.
8) Not a direct game incident, but two of our guys were playing golf at Jackson Park (which they want to ruin with the Obama museum) and a couple of guys jump out of the trees and bushes with knives and told the guys to give them their clubs. One of our guys gave them a cock 'n bull story about his putter being a gift from his grandpa and asked him if he could keep it. They said o.k. Our guy took out the putter and proceeded to beat the crap out of them with the club. They took off and my buddies finished their round.
We had no national anthem before the games, we had no pre- game team introductions, we had no post game hand shake line....and no one complained or gave a sh-t.
I know that I've left out a few incidents.  Hope you have enjoyed these personal tales of yester-year.

Drake fans have been treated to some extra entertainment on occasion.  New Mexico State fight

I swear there was a VERY violent finish to a Drake game in the late '80s or early '90s where punches were thrown and benches cleared, but I can't remember the opponent nor could I find anything via Google. We previously discussed this incident or non-incident around this same time last year with several members of this board unable to recall the alleged event and disbelieving that it happened. Anyone with a better memory than me out there who can pinpoint the game?

Apparently, there was a violent brawl in a Drake loss to Louisville during the 1969 season. We all know how that season ended....

I remember some games that were real rough in the 80's. Seems the younger Kreklow was real feisty for his size was always getting sewn up or bandaged. One of the tougher players was Ricky Watley. I remember a rough and tumble game against Iowa maybe 1982-83. Iowa was good, Lute was the coach for the Hawkeyes, Drake led most the game but lost in the last minute or so.

I sat under the basket the year of the New Mexico State brawl at Vet's. Seemed Dana Dunson tipped the ball in on the long last second. I stood up after cheering to put my coat on. A NMSU player under the basket says to me "there is no way that counted"  I just pointed to the score board. He and a few of the other NMSU players were beyond miffed. There was a Drake band bass drummer that had a really resonant voice. I think he said something a couple of the NMSU players didn't care for at all and went into the band to disagree. I remember a Des Moines policeman pinning one NMSU players down and putting cuffs on him. 

Dana Dunson could jump really well for his size.

I seem to remember a game in about 1974or 5 when Bob Ortegel was coach vs either Louisville or Bradley Ortegel and the other coach , I think it was Joe Stowell, got in a heated argument before the game near half court line and had to be separated. Vets was such a great place back then when there were always 8000-10000 attendance

There was a bench clearing brawl w/ Indiana State back in the 80's. Drake had a kid from the KC area, can't remember his name. Got into it with Larry Bird's little brother. Seems to me it was one of those block / charge situations they ended up in a heap and one of them kicked the other while they were both on the floor. Gary Garner jumped on the offending player to hold him down. Drake also had a guy who had done 3 years as a Marine before starting college. I remember him chasing 3 ISU players down the court. 

Edit: Donahue Kinsey (sp) was the player who did a stint as a Marine before Drake. I also remember him running over some screens set for Hersey Hawkins when Bradley was in town. He picked up a foul, but the screens were a bit softer after he had defended Hawkins for a couple of trips.

BlueDawg, I think that's the one that I remember!  (I was off by around 5 years.)  It wasn't the most brutal college basketball fight I've ever seen, but it was all-out mayhem!  Players running up and down the court, after one another.  I remember it as a rather uneventful Drake basketball season except for that one night!  Season ticket holders got their money's worth.
