WATCH: Ashton Hagans keeps his cool with South Carolina fan in his face

This was not the best game of Ashton Hagans’ career, but kudos to the sophomore guard for keeping his cool in a situation many would not.

With a minute left in the game, Hagans fouled out and, with the South Carolina crowd giving him his marching orders, headed to the bench. He went to the baseline to cool off, where he was met by a South Carolina fan who started taunting him and mimicking his movements:

Ashton is a much bigger person than I am.

    Wow. Writing this about him keeping his cool. How about he start playing under control on the court. Write about him being a turnover waiting to happen.

      You’re an idiot. Let’s take a player who has been great most of the season, just coming off of a game where he was knocking on the door of a triple-double, and define him by his first terrible game this year.

      Just don’t hop back on the bandwagon when we win again and Hagan’s has a great gamd

    Tough to get mad about it, we would be laughing if one of our fans did that.

    Regardless, trying to incite a reaction from 18-19 year olds is pathetic on all fronts

      SC fans are the worst! Their inbred fans shouted such horrible things at our football players this year that Coach Clink had to come to their defense on the sideline! Ridiculous!

      Dude is just an attention hog. If he was in a mlb stadium, he’d have cops all over him.

    I took it a different way. I felt he should have just sat down and avoided the whole thing.

    The SC guy there acted like he was in elementary school. That’s a maturity issue. I hope we wouldn’t laugh at that because it’s kinda pathetic.

    Dude is a jerk, but in his defense, it’s their biggest win of the season, & Hagans could have avoided that by just taking a seat. He saw the guy mimicking him initially & went back for a 2nd round.

    I agree with you guys – Hagans should have taken a seat. Evidently, it’s not hard to live rent free in his head.

      Do you know what that phrase even means? The guy clearly wasn’t getting to Hagans because he stood there and ignored him. If he had gone and sat down, that would mean he was bothered by it.

    Hagans handled it better than I probably would have. That loser got his 15 seconds of fame at the expense of a 20 yo kid. He’ll be asking for his autograph next time he sees him.

    Life on the road. That’s why we don’t play Indiana any more. Now if we could only drop SC.

    This shows maturity on Hagans part. I like our team come March.

    You know,any fan like that,and I’m including a UK fan is pathetic !
    Enjoy the win,be happy,great,but to act like a 5 year old and mock a kid over a game,really ?! That’s just about as childish as it gets there !

    That SC fan is also a 20 something and has a right to give the other team some business within a certain guideline…he did, and he kept it PC and it’s okay…Hagans also did what he was supposed to do in that situation, which is nothing. To the point of what the headline should read….who cares, really. We lost, not just because of hagans….defensive rebounding, early foul trouble for NR, or becaus Cal didn’t call a timeout when the primary defender on the buzzer beater fell after hitting his shot…IQ was scrambling to recover all the way down court after tying it….call a TO and get set….or call a TO or two or three when you see a 14 pt lead slowly dwindling….refocus your dang team Cal! Scream at them, get animated…hell get tossed again if you have to. All that said, respect to SC and to Frank Martin….would love to see him coach loaded with the same five stars we get.
