LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas coach Bill Self says the Iowa State student government sent him a letter apologizing for a pair of incidents that occurred during the Jayhawks’ overtime victory over the Cyclones on Monday night. The sixth-ranked Jayhawks rallied in the closing minutes to force overtime before rolling to a 108-96 victory that left the crowd at Hilton Coliseum stunned.

The first incident occurred after Self gave a brief postgame TV interview. When it was over, an Iowa State fan had to be held back by security when he charged after Self. The second incident occurred on Twitter, where at least two fans made racist and threatening comments directed toward the Jayhawks’ Elijah Johnson, who scored 39 points in the game. Self said he accepted the apology.
