The Southeastern Conference fined Vanderbilt $100,000 Monday for allowing Commodores’ fans to rush the court after Saturday’s 74-62 upset of Kentucky.
The fine was handed down for a violation of a 2004 league policy stating that “access to competition areas shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly-credentialed individuals at all times.”
SEC court storming fines begin at $50,000 for a first offense and go up to $100,000 for a second offense and up to $250,000 for additional offenses.
Vandy’s $100,000 penalty was it’s second following a men’s basketball victory over No. 1 Florida in 2007.
