“That’s disgusting behaviour.”

Those were the words used by an ESPN play-by-play announcer to describe Oklahoma State’s Marcus Smart’s altercation with a Texas Tech super-fan in the crowd.

Smart appears to lose his temper as he falls down while trying to get back on defence.

His 19th ranked Cowboy’s went on to lose the game to unranked Texas Tech 65 -61, with this little sideshow not helping the cause.

There are reports surfacing the fan muttered something rude to Smart.

Including CBS reporter Doug Gottlied’s text message conversation with ‘Orr’ the super-fan after the game.

After the game Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith told reporters “I’m sure he regrets doing that.”

The problem is, this isn’t the first time Smart has lost his cool.

In a game against West Virgina on Jan. 25, Smart threw a collection of hissy fits, and eventually fouled out of the physical affair.

He offered up this apology on Twitter about his lack of composure.

His last name is looking a little more ironic now.
