Missouri, Georgia coaches fight before halftime
There weren’t a whole lot of fireworks during the first half of the Missouri-Georgia basketball game on Saturday, but that all changed as soon as the half ended.
Two men got into a fight before their teams cleared the court at halftime, leading to a scuffle the referees had to break up. According to Dawg Nation, it was Georgia director of basketball operations Kent Davison and Missouri assistant coach Steve Shields who got into it:

Despite being 5-8 entering the game, Missouri held a 26-20 halftime lead over Georgia.
