Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State’s star guard is in hot water after shoving a Texas Tech fan late in Oklahoma State’s loss to Texas Tech in Lubbock, Texas yesterday.

Marcus will likely face disciplinary action from the university or Big 12 Conference, including a possible suspension, after going into the stands to push the fan, identified as Jeff Orr.

And then, there’s this…

The Cowboys were trailing by two points when Smart ran back on defense during a Red Raiders fastbreak and blocked a layup by Jaye Crockett with 6.2 seconds left. Smart, who was called for a foul on the play, stumbled over a person along the baseline and fell in front of the first row of stands.

After Smart was helped to his feet, he turned toward the stands and immediately walked to Jeff Orr, who was obviously saying something, and pushed him with both hands to the chest. Orr stumbled backward but did not fall.

Smart was immediately escorted away by teammates but continued to point and talk back to Orr as he left the court. Smart, who had 22 points, was assessed a technical foul but was not ejected from the game, although he remained on the bench when play resumed.

Watch the incident above.

And we have to ask, why do you think the shove-gate occurred?
