Pikeville head coach Bart Williams gave the following statement to Allkyhoops:

"I am not exactly sure what happened or how the post-game incident started. My main focus was to get our players off the floor and to the locker room. However, I didn't see any punches thrown from anyone. It is just very unfortunate that this happened after such a good game and a great win for our team."

Pikeville won the game 75-72 in overtime.
