Emotions were running high between the Georgia and Missouri basketball teams at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens just before halftime.

Players from both teams got into a scuffle on the court as the first-half buzzer sounded, before Bulldogs and Tigers coaches each got involved, nearly coming to blows.

Georgia’s director of basketball operations Kent Davison and Missouri assistant coach Steve Shields got into a shoving match and had to by physically restrained. Both teams were assessed technical fouls for the scuffle.

Here’s how it all went down:

Georgia eventually went on to win the game, 71-66, to record their first victory of 2017 and advancing to 10-5 on the season.

Missouri, meanwhile, suffered their sith consecutive loss to fall to 5-9 this season. Missouri better find a way to get back in the win column soon, or head coach Kim Anderson could soon be looking for another job.
