Wichita State Coach Gregg Marshall’s wife, Lynn, was just a little upset after the Shockers’s 65-62 loss to Kentucky on Sunday in Indianapolis.

The Associated Press reports that a security guard asked Lynn Marshall to leave her seat in the lower bowl at Bankers Life Fieldhouse “after she started loudly cursing” following the game. More from the AP:

A police officer was eventually called and followed Lynn Marshall up the steps. She later was taken back to the playing level on an elevator so she could attend her husband’s news conference.NCAA spokesman David Worlock says it is standard procedure for the wife of a coach to be escorted to the press conference but it is usually done by school officials.Lynn Marshall remained in the stands about 10 minutes after the final buzzer. She at first consoled fans and family members of the team’s players. But then she started shouting loudly about the calls made during the game. Eventually, the people around coaxed her to leave and the police officer followed.

Drew Franklin of KentuckySportsRadio.com tweeted a video of Lynn Marshall cheering on the Shockers during the game. In a post on his site, Franklin reports that an NCAA official approached him and told him he could no longer tweet about Marshall because “it made her upset. He says he was later told he had to delete the video, which doesn’t show Marshall saying or doing anything uncouth. Franklin initially obliged, but later reposted the video.
